“Can Redistribution solve Capitalism’s Crises?” – Public Meeting in New York

In New York in December? Here’s something you should do

Public Meeting New York December 2

If you’re in or near New York City, please join us at Bluestockings bookstore for a special roundtable discussion co-sponsored by Marxist-Humanist Initiative and Internationalist Perspective, “Can Redistribution Solve Capitalism’s Crises?” Discussants will include Andrew Kliman, Anne Jaclard, Mac Intosh, and Sander.

The roundtable will critically examine proposals to redistribute income and wealth that are currently popular in “Marxist,” social democratic, and left-Keynesian circles. Can redistribution make capitalism “fair”? Can it prevent repeated economic crises? Does inequality cause crises and poverty? If not, what are the causes? Can capitalism be reformed to make it serve human needs? If not, what is the alternative?

The discussion will take place on Monday, December 2, between 7 and 9 pm. Bluestockings is at 172 Allen St., near Houston St. in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
