Our Spring 2021 issue, Global Economic Disorder, is out now. On Wednesday, April 14 at 7 p.m. ET, Dissent board member and special section co-editor Julia Ott will moderate a discussion with contributors Tim Barker, Penelope Kyritsis, Walden Bello, and Anakwa Dwamena.
In the issue, Tim Barker examines global secular stagnation; Penelope Kyritsis and Genevieve LeBaron investigate textile workers’ widespread hunger; Walden Bello charts multilateralism’s declining legitimacy; and Anakwa Dwamena analyzes the limits of sweatshops as springboards for industrialization in East Africa.
