Book Launch: Public Alternative to the Privatisation of Life By Dexter Whitfield
January 28, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Jubilee Scotland has the pleasure of inviting Dexter Whitfield (Director, European Services Strategy Unit) to speak about his exciting new book Public Alternative to the Privatisation of Life. The book sets out a radical agenda for decommodification, public ownership and provision, re-municipalisation, reconstructing democracy, public management and public investment. It explains the drivers of financialisation, marketisation, individualisation and privatisation. Public Alternative to the Privatisation of Life provides comprehensive evidence of the failure of privatization and the economic, social and environmental damage to people’s lives and working conditions.
At the book launch Dexter will discuss key points of the book and share his views on what policies and strategies are needed to deliver fundamental change. The event will be chaired by the Director of Commonweal, Robin McAlpine.
