Another Now

Dispatches from an Alternative Present




What would a fair and equal society actually look like? The world-renowned economist and bestselling author presents his radical and subversive answer

'One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope' Slavoj Zizek

Imagine a world with no banks. No stock market. No tech giants. No billionaires.

Imagine if Occupy and Extinction Rebellion actually won.

In Another Now world-famous economist, Yanis Varoufakis, shows us what such a world would look like. Far from being a fantasy, he describes how it could have come about - and might yet. But would we really want it?

Varoufakis's boundary-breaking new book confounds expectations of what the good society would look like and confronts us with the greatest question: are we able to build a better society, despite our flaws.
