The Panama Papers revelations are just the latest in a series of scandals and crises that demonstrate how capitalism goes hand in hand with inequality and corruption. With each new outrage comes a new challenge to the mantra that 'there is no alternative'. In this second edition, Richard Swift analyses the alternatives that have presented themselves through history. In critiquing what has gone before and exploring current forms of opposition he develops an inspirational manifesto for the future.
Richard Swift is former editor of New Internationalist magazine and author of the No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy. In 2011 he won the Daniel Singer Millennium Prize for an original essay which helps further socialist ideas.
