An event every week that begins at 11:00 AM on Sunday, repeating until Sun, April 11, 2021
An Opening Session with Hadas Thier with a 14-week class conducted with Sam Salour
A lively, accessible, and timely guide to capitalism for those who want to understand and dismantle the world of the 1%. Economists regularly promote capitalism as the greatest and most efficient economic and political system ever to grace the planet. With the same breath, they implore us to leave the job of understanding the magical powers of the market to the “experts.” Despite the efforts of these mainstream commentators to convince us otherwise, many of us have begun to question why this system has produced such vast inequality and wanton disregard for its own environmental destruction. This book offers answers to exactly these questions on their own terms: in the form of a radical economic theory. The 14-week class which begins in early January will feature a close reading and discussion of the entire book with explication and references to additional materials related to this study.
All events are sliding scale. No one is denied admission for inability to pay. Please write to email@example.com for reduced rates or the links for attending if you are unable to pay.
