We're not actually sure how Starfleet funds anything, but what are some viable, functional alternatives to capitalism that *are* well explained in SF&F? And how do societies using them interact with capitalist societies?


One of the panels I was worried about has acquired other panelists, one has not. So, even though I am just the freelance moderator, I've got to prepare thoroughly for this one. Do you have any suggestions for SF that examines alternatives to capitalism?

Do you think Iain Banks's Culture belongs in this panel, or is it so post-capitalism that doesn't make sense to call it an alternative?


Also, I have five pink and five black "Fight Fascism" stickers, from here: https://studentactivism.net/ If you are going to Wiscon, and you would like one, call dibs here.
