Victoria: Beyond Banksters Book Tour with author Joyce Nelson
September 25, 2017
Joyce Nelson is an award-winning writer and researcher. In Beyond Banksters, she examines how corporations and private banks are working together to continue the privatization of public infrastructure and services. Politicians have supported this process through laws and regulations that benefit the global elite and their interests, while at the same time undermining the ability of people to challenge these trends. Neo-liberalism has normalized the idea that there is no alternative to the market, slashing regulations, the pursuit of profit and the enclosure of the public sphere. Nelson provides hope for resistance and highlights how people can challenge this “new feudalism."
