Posted on: September 10th, 2014 by Archivist
Economic realities and their theories define our world regardless of where we live. After a while, they deserve reexamination to see if they measure up to our needs, interests and values. This week Ellen visits with Prof. Cynthia Kaufman about her book Getting Past Capitalism and looks at some of its systemic failings and limitations. Similarly, students around the world are demanding reexamination of the prevailing economics canon hoping to institute a broader, more politically responsible view of economic theory. Co-host Walt McRee talks with an organizer of the “Rethinking Money NY” conference taking place this weekend at Columbia.
