[6.14.14] Summer 2014 teach-in: Empire and social democracy

 

Taking advantage of the break in our primary reading group schedule, we will hold a discussion of the relation of Keynesianism, social-democratic politics and Marxism to the purported decline of the U.S. as global hegemonic state, beginning in the 1970s and continuing in "Left" discourse to the present.

Saturday, June 14 from 1-4 PM
School of the Art Institute of Chicago
112 S. Michigan Ave
Room 920

Readings for discussion:

Platypus Historians Group, Friedrich Hayek and the legacy of Milton Friedman: Neo-liberalism and the question of freedom (In part, a response to Naomi Klein) (2008)

Robert Lekachman, Capitalism for Beginners (1981)

Michael Harrington, "Marxism and democracy" Praxis International 1.1 (1981)
