Global Capitalism - May Monthly Update

May 14, 2013 - 19:30 - 21:00
The Brecht Forum, 451 West Street, New York, NY 10014
These Tuesday evenings begin with updates and analyses of major economic events during the last month. We focus especially on the ongoing global capitalist economic crisis, government responses, and how they are changing and challenging contemporary capitalism. We examine resistances to "austerity," "deficit reduction" and other similar programs that try to shift the costs of capitalist crisis onto the general population. 
Actual economic developments and the alternative theoretical and analytical options for understanding them are central to these presentations. When time permits, there are general discussions open to all on the developments of the US and world economies and especially their political implications. We aim to develop all participants’ understanding and their ability to explain how economies are changing to others.
All Monthly Updates are video taped and posted to
Sliding scale: $6/$10/$15
