“After decades of capitalist realism, it would be possible to imagine a world based on cooperation rather than competition"
Grace Blakeley is a British author who writes about economic policy. A former research fellow at the Institute for Public Policy Research, she is currently a staff writer at the New Statesman. Grace holds a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and a Masters in African Studies, both from Oxford University, and makes regular appearances on national television commenting on economic and political matters.
Her first book, Stolen: How To Save the World from Financialisation, argues that the recovery from the 2007-8 credit crunch mainly benefited the 1%, and that a shift to democratic socialism is urgently needed to resolve mounting inequality and the domination of finance capital.
