Note: The event date has changed to January 21st!

We’re starting the year with a mini-series covering the ABCs of Capitalism by Vivek Chibber, editor of Catalyst and professor of sociology at NYU. For January we’ll cover A: Understanding Capitalism, in which Chibber explains why capitalism isn’t just a collection of individuals, but individuals grouped in social classes with very different interests.

The pamphlets are available in sets of three from Jacobin. We also have a decent supply on-hand for Night School use. Pick up a set at a chapter meeting or e-mail us to get one!

Required reading
The ABCs of Capitalism: Understanding Capitalism

Optional reading
If you can’t get a copy of the pamphlet (or prefer podcasts), this lecture by Vivek Chibber covers much of the same material and should adequately prepare you to take part in the discussion.
