The Failure of Capitalist Production

When: Friday, March 15, 2013, 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Where: Encuentro 5 • 9 Hamilton Place, Suite 2A • Boston
2013 Mar 15 - 7:30pm
2013 Mar 15 - 9:30pm

Speaker: Andrew Kliman

Andrew Kliman will make a rare Boston appearance to discuss his book "The Failure of Capitalist Production: Underlying Causes of the Great Recession" (Pluto 2012). Many analyses of the Great Recession have been put forward from theories of unregulated finance, to Neoliberalism, to rising inequality. Kliman's book is the first to put forward, based on in-depth empirical analysis of US data, that Marx's theory of the Tendency of the Rate of Profit to Fall can explain these events. This talk will also present some of Kliman's most recent work on the contentious issues of wages and inequality.
