Covid, Capitalism & Ecology:
A Conversation with Mike Davis
and Rob Wallace

Rob Wallace and Mike Davis, each of whom has new books out on this subject, are two of the world's leading left-wing thinkers and writers on the subject of the pandemic.

This conversation with Rob and Mike is sponsored by the newly organized Global Ecosocialist Network (GEN). GEN is an international association of socialists formed in response to the catastrophic ecological crisis rapidly engulfing our world.

The conversation with Rob and Mike will be introduced by GEN members Sabrina Fernandes from Brazil and Ian Angus from Canada. System Change Not Climate Change is cohosting via Facebook to spread the word about this event to our followers throughout North America and around the world.

System Change Not Climate Change has affiliated with GEN because we agree with its core principles and recognize that only an international movement and global mobilization of people power can bring about the system change we need. We encourage activists to visit GEN's webpage and consider joining GEN if you agree with GEN's key principles
. Individual membership entails a modest membership fee payable in Euros.

Rob Wallace is an evolutionary biologist, a visiting scholar at the Institute for Global Studies at the University of Minnesota, and a deli clerk at a local sandwich shop in St. Paul, Minnesota. Rob is the author of Big Farms Make Big Flu: Dispatches on Infectious Disease, Agribusiness, and the Nature of Science (Monthly Review Books 2020).


Mike Davis is the author of several books including City of Quartz, Buda's Wagon, Ecology of Fear, Planet of Slums, and (with Jon Wiener) Set the Night on Fire. Mike, a former meat cutter and truck driver, lives in San Diego. Mike's latest book is The Monster Enters: COVID-19, Avian Flu and the Plagues of Capitalism (OR Books 2020).
