This is a virtual event

For this session we'll be discussing disaster capitalism. We've seen it in action before, and we're watching it happen again. Things are starting to feel a bit like a bad remake of 2008, now with special guest: global pandemic. We'll explore some of how we got here, and try to figure out how it might be possible to break free of this pattern.


There were some great questions that people asked during April's session, so definitely share your questions during the discussion on Monday. As you're doing the readings, think of questions you'd like to ask the group! :)

Readings:
Naomi Klein, The Rise of Disaster Capitalism  
Thomas J. Adams, How the Ruling Class Remade New Orleans  
Mike Davis, The Coronavirus Crisis is a Monster Fueled by Capitalism
