Join us as we engage in a lively conversation on different variations of capitalism and their defining characteristics and outcomes.
Loosely defined as an economic system that highlights the importance of private property and free markets, Capitalism has been subject to various practical interpretations informed by history, culture and national context. In this five session course, Michael Bucher will present cross-country variations of modern capitalism, comparing and contrasting the share-holder model that has been holding sway in the United States since the early 1980 to alternatives that place more emphasis on workers and communities.
