Is organizing a workshop …

Wage-led Growth: An Alternative to Finance-led Capitalism?

Date: 14th June 2011 , 09:00 to 18:00

Location: JG0003 Penrhyn Road Campus, Kingston, KT1 2EE

Fee: Free, advance registration essential

Neoliberalism has led to a polarization in the distribution of income and given rise to a finance-led growth model that collapsed in the worst crisis since the 1930s. Wage-led growth has recently been proposed as an alternative policy strategy. It aims at linking wage growth to productivity growth and inflation. Growing wages could then generate high demand by fuelling consumption. But such a strategy could also ignite the growth of the capital stock if consumption demand has second round effects on investment, and if wage growth induces technological change and productivity growth. Thus, for a wage-growth policy to be successful, it needs be embedded in an economic policy regime that gives a greater role to labour unions and restrains the financial sector.

The Workshop will introduce recent research on wage-led growth and provide a forum for critical discussion.

Teach-in on Saturday 26th February 2011

A World To Win

Youth unemployment and rising food prices as well as authoritarian rule have pitched people in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Algeria and Bahrain into conflict with their regimes. The same global economic crisis lies behind the Coalition’s drive to rescue the capitalist economy through huge spending cuts.

And a political system in which you get a government you didn’t vote for that acts for big business means that there is no way out for people in Britain either.

The TUC’s March 26 walk in the park will solve nothing, as many are aware. Join A World to Win’s contingent and help move beyond resistance to the cuts to changing the system we live under.

Closer to hand, our Teach-in on Saturday February 26 will draw out the connection between the eco-crisis, the destructive drive for growth at any cost and the role of People’s Assemblies in bringing about a not-for-profit, truly democratic society.

A top United Nations official has warned that the military around the world are preparing for unrest resulting from the effects of climate change on people’s lives. So we’d better get organised.

Sign-up now for Beyond Resistance to the cuts – building People’s Assemblies Teach-In, ‘Kicking Capitalism’s Growth Habit – Building a Sustainable Economy’. Open discussion + film show.

Forward this to your friends, spread the word on Facebook … and follow A World to Win on Twitter.

Kicking capitalism’s growth habit – building a sustainable economy

Saturday 26 February 1.30-5.30pm [register from 1pm]
R509, Birkbeck College
Malet Street
