Night School: The Economics of Capitalism
February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Capitalism is the economic system that guides our society in the production of goods and services to be bought and sold on the market. It divides society into two classes where one class owns the means of production and the other class has no choice but to sell their labor to this first class to survive. But while capitalism has arguably raised our aggregate standard of living, it has also created immense instability, inequality, exploitation and suffering where the few benefit at the expense of the many. In this session, we will discuss the economics of capitalism and discuss how it results in these contradictions. It is only with a clear-eyed understanding of our current predicament can we hope to move beyond it to build a society that benefits everyone.
