Join us for a close reading of Jason W. Moore's Capitalism in the Web of Life. Using Moore's world-ecology framework, we will rethink the history of capitalism as a dialectic in which wealth, power, and nature interact to produce recurring crises - including today's troubling nexus of global warming, mass extinction, and the exceeding of planetary boundaries.

Capital Crisis: 2008 Global Slump

A decade has passed but the crisis is not over. Indeed we might even say that we are only beginning to see the effects of this greatest crisis of capitalism: the rise of anti neo-liberal populism of the right and left in Trump and Sanders, Brexit, extreme austerity, all the labor and social movements such as the teachers movement in the US and the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) in France and the deepening crisis in the Middle East. The ruling class has regrouped and regained its arrogance, continuing their political and economic assault imposing ever deeper social wage cuts while ideologically taking aim at hard won democratic and civil rights. It remains important for us to understand the underlying causes within this late stage of capitalist development that led to the 2008 crisis so that we of the working classes develop our capacity to effectively take on the political, ideological and economic challenges we are facing now and in the struggles ahead for a better life for all.
