'What is Capitalism?'

 


At the head of this page is the slogan "promoting capitalist acts between consenting adults."

But what are "capitalist acts"?

What is capitalism?

How accurately can you answer that question?

Fortunately, philosopher Stephen Hicks is about to start an online course ['The Capitalism Course' by Dr Stephen Hicks] in which the first lecture asks and answers that very question.

We will look at several influential definitions [he says], and I will argue my way to mine.
When: Wednesday, October 13, 7 p.m. Central Time. [That's Thursday October 14, 1pm NZT.]
Where: MyJunto. Registration is free and open to anyone interested.

While the course has no prerequisites, the expectation for participants is that they will have read or viewed the preparatory material for each session.

To register, go to MyJunto or visit this Facebook announcement page.

Thanks to a few abusers I am regularly moderate comments.
I welcome thoughtful disagreement. I will delete comments with insulting or abusive language, unless they're entertaining. I will also delete totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. I am much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
