Three Cheers for Marxist Monetary Theory: The Eurozone through the Prism of World Money

The global economic and financial crisis has witnessed a deepening of interest in different forms of critical and radical thought and practice.

It involves collaboration among Marxist scholars based in several Londonuniversities, including Brunel University, King’s College London, and the Schoolof Oriental and African Studies. Guest speakers – from both Britain and abroad – will include a wide range of thinkers engaging with many different elements of the various Marxist traditions, as well as with diverse problems and topics. The aim of the seminar is to promote fruitful debate and to contribute to the development of more robust Marxist analysis.

It is open to all.
