45 Mins With: Prof Venkatesh Athreya on the US Empire, Neoliberalism and Multipolarity

Our global political economy is going through some massive changes. Many experts have said that we could be witnessing the slow decline of the US & Western Empire right now. Are we moving towards a multipolar world? What role will China play? And after more than 40 years of neoliberalism, why are we seeing growing fascist or right-wing populist movements across the globe? 

These are big questions. 

We speak to Professor Venkatesh Athreya, Economist & Activist from Tamil Nadu, India.
