Thomas Piketty and Naomi Klein were our guests on Monday 14 December to open the SSEES Centenary Conference Socialism, Capitalism and the Alternatives. In their first encounter, Piketty spoke about inequality in the 21st century, and Klein about the twin crises of capitalism and climate, and the Paris climate agreement. Piketty appeared on BBC Newsnight on the same night. You can watch this on the BBC IPlayer, or this full, uncut version of his interview. Klein gave an interview to Owen Bennett for the Huffington Post. On Twitter, the conference hashtag #SSEES100 trended for several hours.
