Alternative Economies is the theme for a series of public dialogues taking place in the run up to Laboratory of Common Interest, a project to coincide with the centenary of the Limerick soviet in April 2019. Inspired by soviet’s production of a temporary currency, these dialogues ask what is an alternative economy? Could an alternative currency operate during the centenary and if so how?
This second dialogue in the series will feature a guest, Dr. Conor McCabe, whose recently published book, Money (2018), addresses the opaque and abstract form of money as a social relation and as a technology of power. It also puts forward alternatives that involve facing up to deep economic class divisions within Irish society.
This dialogue is not an academic event but a round table discussion open to everyone.
