About the blog

The Talking Capitalism blog is a way to share words and images from Sarah's road trip 2018 but also from members of the Talking Capitalism Collective and others. 


Posts from the road trip will appear on The Blog page but only posts from the road (Sarah's and those of people she meets) will appear on the Road Trip page. 


We're eager to open the conversation to as many people as possible; if you'd like to post to the blog, please email talkingcapitalism@gmail.com or go to the Contact page.
