ANDREW KLIMAN ON CAUSES AND IMPLICATIONS OF THE CAPITALIST CRISIS

July 8th London Forum

Andrew Kliman speaks on the Capitalist Crisis

Andrew Kliman, author of ‘Reclaiming Marx’s Capital’, will be giving a talk in London on Wednesday 8th on ’causes and implications of the capitalist crisis’. The meeting takes place from 8pm at the Lucas Arms, Grays Inn Road, near King’s Cross.

See: http://thecommune.wordpress.com/2009/07/04/july-8th-london-forum-kliman-speaks-on-the-capitalist-crisis/

Kliman, a member of the USA’s Marxist-Humanist Initiative, has argued that we have to see the current crisis as part of a wider structural crisis of capital, and moreover has argued that statist and Keynesian solutions to the crisis are a dead end for the working class. See our October interview with him here.

The meeting is being jointly hosted by The Commune and The Hobgoblin group.

Eurozone Crisis

EUROZONE IN CRISIS: REFORM OR EXIT?

Research on Money and Finance (RMF) at SOAS and the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities are organising a roundtable on:

‘Eurozone in Crisis: Reform or Exit?’

The event will explore themes from the widely read RMF report ‘Eurozone in Crisis: Beggar Thyself and Thy Neighbour’. It will also contribute to the debate on the social, political and economic aspects of the Eurozone crisis that was launched by the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities. Since the start of 2010 the Eurozone crisis has become progressively deeper, threatening the existence of the euro as well as the coherence of the European Union. The crisis poses questions of economic malfunctioning and austerity policies imposed on several European countries, but also of democracy and state relations within the European Union. The roundtable will consider these issues from a variety of radical perspectives.

Participants include:

Costas Lapavitsas, SOAS, ‘Reform or Exit from the Eurozone?”

George Irvin, SOAS, ‘Costs and Benefits of Default’

Costas Douzinas, Birkbeck, ‘The Democratic Deficit within the Eurozone’

Stathis Kouvelakis, King’s College, ‘The Eurozone Crisis as a Crisis of the State”

Alex Callinicos, King’s College, ‘Political Implications of the Eurozone Crisis’

CHAIR: Larry Elliott, The Guardian Newspaper.

Date and Time: June 2nd, 6-8
Venue: Rm B33, Birkbeck College, Mallet St. WC1
