My name is Paris

Paris MarxI’m a socialist, a traveller, and an urbanist. I send a new issue of my newsletter, Radical Urbanist, every Sunday. Please subscribe!

Much of my writing focuses on the intersection of technology and transportation, but I’ve also done considerable research on climate change and inequality. My words have been published by NBC News, CBC News, the Toronto StarJacobin Magazine, Recode, and a number of other publications.

I’ve been interviewed about the gig economy on RT’s Boom Bust and streaming music services on WNPR’s The Colin McEnroe Show, and I talked to Forbes Africa about autonomous vehicles, OZY about scooter juicers, and Humber News about how ride-hailing companies make congestion worse.

After several years of travel, during which time I lived in Australia and New Zealand, I finally completed a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Memorial University of Newfoundland in May 2017; and, in September 2018, I began a Master of Arts in Geography at McGill University.

It’s my firm belief that a better world is possible, but only if we can overcome the divisions forced on us by an elite that will do anything to retain its wealth and power, and present a programme that can convince the masses of the need for change. I try to promote this shift, and I hope you’ll join me in expanding the conversation and educating our fellow travellers.
