"King Cotton" is a gripping narrative of the history of the global marketing and industrialisation of cotton and an alternative explanation for the phenomenon of global capitalism. But the book offers possibilities to think beyond the narrow focus of the topic.

Some of these possibilities with regard to the "other side" of capitalism, the (often missing or inadequate) social policy and the welfare state will be presented and discussed in this event.
