About this Episode

"[The pandemic] is a monetary event aimed at prolonging the lifespan of our finance-driven and terminally ill mode of production." This is the provocative thesis of Fabio Vighi, who joins me to discuss the series of recent articles for The Philosophical Salon where he elaborates this argument in full. He explains how Covid has served as a useful crisis, justifying unprecedented and indefinite "monetary doping," keeping finance capital afloat, and why the flipside of this largesse is the increasing regimentation of all facets of human life through digitized biopolitical control.
