'"We have a world to win"
Aaron Bastani is the co-founder of Novara Media. Described as 'the slickest of the guerrilla news and opinion operations that have sprung up in Britain' by the Guardian. From humble origins in 2011 it is now a prominent power on the new left, with pundits regularly invited onto Newsnight and videos recieving hundreds of thousands of views.
His book, Fully Automated Luxury Communism: A manifesto sets out a future of technological optimism and abundance without work, and his arguments for UBI and reduced working weeks have inspired debate across the political spectrum.
"Overall, I think that Bastani’s fully automated luxury communist manifesto is essential reading for those interested in thinking beyond the contemporary late capitalist impasse" -Theory, Culture and Society
