Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work is a major new book that argues for a novel set of alternatives for the future - alternatives which seek to rekindle a popular modernity.
The book lists three "demands" on its front cover: Demand full automation, Demand basic universal income, and Demand the future.
At this London Futurists event, the authors of this book, political scientists Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams, present their vision for that better future, along with their analysis of shortcomings in recent political movements.

The event was chaired by David Wood and the camera was operated by Kiran Manam.
