APPEAL reading group: What is Capitalism? Session 2
Thursday August 27, 3pm Eastern Daylight Time via Zoom
Please join us for the second session of our new reading group on the meaning and nature of capitalism, with a focus on political economy and law. For this session, we will discuss two short essays by economist Joan Robinson: Latter-Day Capitalism, New Left Review July/August 1962, and The Final End of Laissez-Faire, New Left Review, July/August 1964.
Meeting approximately every month, we ask participants to read material circulated in advance and to be prepared to discuss a series of questions about the readings on topics such as the elements of capitalism; temporal dynamics of capitalism; varieties of capitalism; and capitalism, subjectivity, and inequality.
