Critical Finance Strategies, Three Months into the Corona Crisis
Brett Scott, in conversation with Geert Lovink
Special guests: Iztok Hočevar, Tjaša Pureber, Vuk Ćosić and Rok Kranjc
During spring 2019, a fancy new word made the rounds in France: collapsology. What would this entail, a year later? The collapse of certain aspects of global finance, logistics and just-in-time production was announced way earlier. Still, only weeks into the corona crisis, it is too early to say which aspects of the global financial system will be thrown into the dustbin of history. Pivotal nation-states are now exploring digital currencies as one tool for post-pandemic stimulus (or austerity). How do earlier proposals for Universal Basic Income relate to the sudden appearance of helicopter money in some countries? Are the Keynesian money proposals to prop up the Western economies an indication of the end of the neoliberal hegemony? Is the quasi ban on cash during the corona crisis an indication of the arrival of the cashless society?
