A People’s Guide to Capitalism
Sun, January 24 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 11:00 AM on Sunday, repeating until Sun, February 28, 2021
A multi-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 the mainstream commentators to convince us otherwise, many of us have begun to question why this system has produced such vast inequality and 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 multi-week class will feature a close reading and discussion of the entire book with explication and references to additional materials related to this study. If you would prefer to order the class and Hadas Thier’s book at the same time you are receiving the book at less than half price.
All events are sliding scale. No one is denied admission for inability to pay. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for reduced rates or the links for attending if you are unable to pay.
