  1. What Karl Marx Really Thought About Liberalism

    Tonight we’re joined by Matt McManus and Ben Burgis for a discussion on Marxism and liberalism. Karl Marx celebrated liberalism’s achievements, such as freedom of the press, while excoriating its fidelity to the private property rights of capitalists. We discuss how capitalism is a barrier to the fulfilment of many liberal rights and why a democratic socialism can better guarantee not just equality but freedom.

  2. Red Plenty: Was the Dream of Soviet Abundance Ever Possible?

    A Jacobin book discussion on Francis Spufford’s “Red Plenty” with Ben Burgis, Leigh Phillips, and Bhaskar Sunkara. “Red Plenty” is about the hopes that were invested in Soviet planning experiments and the people who tried (and failed) to make socialist abundance a reality. We use the book as a jumping off point to discuss the calculation problem, the economics of a feasible socialism, and more.

  5. Transportation advocates list priorities

    Three leading transportation advocates – Jim Aloisi of TransitMatters, Chris Dempsey of Transportation for Massachusetts, and Stacy Thompson of the Livable Streets Alliance – ring in the new year on The Codcast with a discussion about priorities.

    One of the biggest is putting a price on transportation carbon and using the proceeds to invest in expanded transit options, cleaner vehicles, and climate resiliency. Massachusetts and eight other states plus the District of Columbia plan to spend the next year developing the initiative. Dempsey calls it a “really big deal,” largely because it will provide badly needed revenues that can be used by the participating states to bolster their transit systems and reduce emissions.

    According to Gov. Charlie Baker’s Commission on the Future of Transportation, which recommended pursuing a regional price on transportation carbon, the initiative could raise somewhere between $150 million (at $4.50 per ton of carbon) and $500 million (at $15 a ton) a year for Massachusetts. For the average driver, that works out to between $24 and $84 a year.

  7. The future is what it used to be | Ray Wills | TEDxPerth

    How does understanding historical trends help us predict what is coming next? Futurist Ray Wills has evidence that we’re massively underestimating how quickly renewable energy technology will be adopted. With climate change doom all around, this talk is an optimistic prediction that the future is renewable and that the future is much nearer than you think. Ray researches adoption rates of technology, disruptive technology including automation, robotics, and additive manufacturing and the impact of social media on markets. He is changing the narrative around climate change and technology, and is recognised by SustMeme and Onalytica as one of the top 100 Global Influencers in Social Media on Climate Change and Energy.

    As Adjunct Professor at The University of Western Australia, Ray provides advice to UWA on sustainability and comments on behalf of UWA on climate change and sustainability. He is also Managing Director of the advisory firm Future Smart Strategies, Board Member of Western Australia’s remote energy services provider Horizon Power, Partner and Director of the cleantech business Sun Brilliance Power, Blue Leader of the Singapore-based Blue by Design and Director of the bioenergy startup BioTek Fuels Pty Ltd.
