Meet the Renegades: Eliane Glaser

Eliane Glaser is a Guardian writer, a lecturer and broadcaster. Her interest in ideology and propaganda has led her to critique the current faltering economic system.

In this episode of Meet the Renegades she explores how work is changing, how politics has been hijacked and how we can adapt to the new world. Hint: tech won’t solve everything.

“You have this kind of astroturf politics – a fake grass roots politics. You pretend to be on the side of the working man even though you’re a financial elite or you’re benefiting financial elites. And it’s this politics of disguise, the fake authentic politics where you say ‘we’re with you the hardworking people’ – but actually your interests are not at all aligned.”

Her most recent book ‘Get Real – How to See Through the Hype, Spin and Lies of Modern Life’ is about how (almost) everything is now fake. In it she busts the jargon, unravels the spin and reveals the secrets behind modern life that we’re not really supposed to know.
