The ever-deepening crisis of capitalism is sending tremors through the dominant neo-liberal economic consensus.
Many people are now questioning the logic of the free-market, and looking for an explanation of the current crisis.

Prof Alex Callinicos (European Studies, Author of The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx) looks again at Marx’s Capital, his understanding of the system, and argues for its continued and growing importance.

  1. I would very much like to attend this seminar but unfortunately i am too far away. Will the seminar be recorded and available on the internet? If not is there another way that i am able to find out more about the issues raised in the seminar?

    Thanks, Francesca Loxley.
