Wednesday 21st April 2021

Monopsony Capitalism explores the combination of capital’s changing composition and labour’s subjective agency to examine whether the waning days of the ‘sweatshop’ have indeed begun. Focused on the garment and footwear sectors, it introduces a universal logic that governs competition and reshapes the chain. You can find out more about the book here: Monopsony Capitalism
