James Roberts, a sociologist at the University of Auckland, believes that digital networks open up possibilities for radically transforming our financial and economic systems. We asked him to discuss some of his ideas about intelligent economic planning in a post-capitalist future.



This is the third episode of a new podcast series entitled What IF? (Imagined Futures). In this series of conversations with scholars, researchers and experts from a wide range of disciplines, we explore some of the big challenges and opportunities that the future presents.

What IF? (Imagined Futures) is hosted by Luke Goode.
