Of Flying Cars and the Declining Rate of Profit

The Ultimate Hidden Truth of the World Is… reading group will be meeting throughout 2024-2025, starting in September 2024. We will be joined by curators of the Museum of Care and guest speakers; and each meeting will be dedicated to one of David’s essays featured in the collection.
On May 23rd, we will host a pre-launch event of the programme discussing an essay not featured in the collection but which is considered iconic — Of Flying Cars and the Declining Rate of Profit. This will be a collective reading group because this essay also touches on the key concepts that David explored: technology, economics, and most importantly, the social imaginary.

With: Steven Bachelor, Rachel Donald, Nika Dubrovsky and Michael Reinsborough.
