This book, Beyond Money: A Postcapitalist Strategy — on achieving just and ecologically sustainable futures — offers a lively thought experiment of a world without money. Anitra shows how money drives political power, environmental destruction, and social inequality to argue for abolishing, rather than repurposing, it for a postcapitalist future.

Jeffrey Sparrow will launch the new book with the author Anitra Nelson.

The event is to highlight a book that offers a radical intervention in sustainability debates and strategies by focusing on the significance of money as a barrier and the potential of nonmonetary economies and polities.


Anitra Nelson is Honorary Principal Fellow at the University of Melbourne (Australia), co-author of Exploring Degrowth (2020, Pluto), co-editor of Life Without Money (2011, Pluto) and author of Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet (2018, Pluto) and Marx’s Concept of Money (1999/2014, Routledge). Jeff Sparrow is an author (Crimes Against Nature, 2021), editor, broadcaster, Walkley award-winning journalist, and columnist for The Guardian Australia.
