SEMINAR SERIES

Tuesday June 30. Introduction: purpose of seminar series; overview of crisis theories; definition of “crisis”; history of
capitalist crises; why crisis theory? Led by Josh Skolnik

Tuesday July 14. Underconsumptionism: does paying workers more boost profit? Led by Seth Weiss

Tuesday July 21. Marx’s law of the tendential fall in the rate of profit. Led by Andrew Kliman

Tuesday July 28. The crisis of the free market and the turn to state-capitalist ideology. Led by Anne Jaclard

As the worst economic slump since the Great Depression calls into question the viability of the capitalist system, and as people increasingly doubt whether capitalism is desirable or even necessary, we need to unite theory with practice and an understanding of the current crisis in order to respond effectively. We invite everyone seriously interested in this task to join us in the seminar series. Participants will be expected to have done the readings prior to each session.
Donations are requested, but no one will be turned away because of inability to pay.

Please call us at (888) 579-2245 or write to us at mhi@marxisthumanistinitiative.org in order to register for the seminar series and obtain the syllabus.

Our website contains continuing analysis and discussion of the economic crisis: http://www.marxist-humanist-initiative.org
