Alex Knight is an organizer, teacher and writer in Philadelphia. Alex has been developing the End of Capitalism Theory since 2005 and has maintained endofcapitalism.com since 2007. The EoC Theory argues that the global capitalist system is breaking down due to ecological and social limits to growth and that a paradigm shift toward a non-capitalist future is underway.

Alex began organizing in college on anti-war and environmental issues. From 2006-09, he helped build the new Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Alex was present for the first day of Occupy Wall St. and was instrumental in facilitating the General Assembly of Occupy Philadelphia. Later he co-founded Strike Student Debt, and has been involved in a variety of other social justice projects locally and nationally.
