We’ve finally made it through out first book! At the last meeting, we finished up The ABC’s of Socialism from Jacobin. The discussion was great, filled with thought-provoking perspectives from members.
We’ve held a vote for our next book, and the result is Rethinking Capitalism. Looks like democracy can actually get things done!
For this meeting, we will be reading the first chapter (available here in .pdf). Our discussion will be over the reading as well as analyzing and defining the ideas of capitalism and neoliberalism. For supplemental reading, check William Davies’ article, The New Neoliberalism, from New Left Review last year.
Be prepared to also discuss what we think about the book, Rethinking Capitalism, and what chapters we want to select to read. Steve and Bryan have already bought the book, but it’s best that you wait until after this upcoming meeting should you decide to order it.
We look forward to seeing everyone there, and new faces too! Feel free to bring friends: all are welcome! Get ready for an informative and entertaining discussion!
