The economy of happiness: rich country so what?

In 2015, Paul Mason published an article on The Guardian declaring the imminend death of capitalism. "Without us noticing, we are entering the postcapitalist era. At the heart of further change to come is information technology, new ways of working and the sharing economy. The old ways will take a long while to disappear, but it’s time to be utopian." Now the question comes: is postcapitalism realistic or utopic? Can we build a new economy based on equality and solidarity? Are there alternative measures of wellbeing you've come across that you would like to share with others? Are the sharing economy and universal basic income concepts that you are interested in? Drop in this activity to enrich the European debate with input from collaborative, circular and functional economies.
