Political scientist and veteran global justice activist Susan George talks about her new book, How to Win the Class War, a satire on the wealthiest 1%.

She discusses how austerity policies in Europe mirror the structural adjustment programmes adopted by developing countries in the 1970s and 1980s, and argues that satire and black humour have more chance of engaging people in debates about complex economic issues.
