We are not free. We live in a controlling system that determines who is included and who is excluded, who is rich and who is poor. Economic commentator Grace Blakeley exposes this corrupt system and takes us on a trip through 100 years of corporate crime and political manipulation. Why in times of crisis do governments bail out big companies (and shareholders), but leave ordinary people to face the consequences? According to Grace, it’s time for a radical change of direction. 

Grace Blakeley writes for Tribune Magazine and is the author of several books, including Vulture Capitalism: Corporate Crimes, Backdoor Bailouts and the Death of Freedom; The Corona Crash: How the Pandemic will Change Capitalism and Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialisation. She is the former economic commentator for the New Statesman and a Research Fellow at the Institute of Public Policy Research.
