Coin Operated Futures

Inspired by books such as Mark Fisher’s Capitalist Realism (2009), Paul Mason’s Postcapitalism (2016), Naomi Kline’s Shock Doctrine (2008), and even Naom Chomsky’s Profit Over People (1998), ‘Coin Operated Futures’ reflected upon the neoliberal power and the pro-corporation subsystem of allowing the interests of business to dictate global policy making, or simply the actions of the few, governing the lives of the many.
