After 1989, capitalism has successfully presented itself as the only realistic political-economic system - a situation that the bank crisis of 2008, far from ending, actually compounded. The audiobook analyses the development and principal features of this capitalist realism as a lived ideological framework. Using examples from politics, films, fiction, work, and education, it argues that capitalist realism colours all areas of contemporary experience. But it will also shows that, because of a number of inconsistencies and glitches internal to the capitalist reality program capitalism in fact is anything but realistic.

A tour-de-force analysis of our current political/ social situation
Brilliant, incisive, riveting, unexpected. A must-listen for anyone concerned with our present and future—which I hope would be everyone. Fabulous narration by Russell Brand.
