Author: Yanis Varoufakis | Publisher: RANDOM HOUSE UK

Imagine it is 2025. Years earlier, in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, a global uprising has birthed a post-Capitalist world in which democracy, equality and justice are truly served.In a thought-experiment of startling originality, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis offers a glimpse of this alternative reality. Through the eyes of three characters - a liberal ex-banker, a radical feminist and a maverick technologist - we see what would be needed to forge such a world, one without commercial banks or stock markets, where companies are collectively owned and housing and income are guaranteed, but also at what cost.How to balance freedom with fairness? How to generate wealth while protecting the planet? How to encourage the best of humanity without unleashing the worst?As radical in its form as in its vision, Another Now blends Platonic dialogue with speculative fiction to show how our answers to these questions shape our society, while helping us confront the one question that underpins them all- how far are we willing to go in pursuit of our ideals?
