In this Reboot Republic, Rory talks with Professor Mary Murphy, Head of the Department of Sociology in Maynooth University and author of new book, Creating an Ecosocial Welfare Future, which is book on how we can create a more equal and sustainable future through transforming our welfare state to prevent and meet the challenges of the climate emergency.
We discuss the structural problems with capitalism and climate – an economic model based on constantly growing consumption, inequality, and how we need to imagine and create an alternative based on meeting peoples and planets needs not the billionaires. We discuss theories of economics and capitalism, social change, and inequality and imagining and developing pathways for power and social change.
