Description

"Facebook represents a new form of capitalist capture, one based on monopolization and rent that shapes our current connectivity as it monetises us and opens us up to forms of financialization, including increased indebtedness. This form of capitalist capture moves us into a new regime of accumulation, of profit without production, in which the command of surplus value is via the control of surplus information."

Participants: Will Davies, Natalie Fenton, Matthew Fuller, Olga Goriunova, Sarah Green, Gholam Khiabany, Costas Lapavitsas, Adrian MacKenzie, Dan Mercea, Johnna Montgomerie, Alberto Toscano and Joanna Zylinska.
