    Capitalism and Crime – Profits, Public Good and the Henry George Tradition

    In this seminar, Professor and social reform advocate, James Palombo takes aim at the transformation of our criminal justice into a vast rent seeking enterprise where the profit motive has displaced necessary social adjustment as the main driver of public policy. According to Pr. Palombo, these flaws are not isolated, they are a reflection of bigger dysfunctions in our socio-economic system that incapacitates those at the margins of productivity while shrouding our actual ideological shortcomings.

    Pr. Palombo proposes a Georgist inspired reform that would reinstate the State in its role as procurer of justice and a balanced approach to correction that emphasizes the importance of education and health care. Such a reform would highlight the links between a properly functioning criminal justice system and an economy that is built around the very idea of justice.

    James Palombo’s previous book, Criminal to Critic-Reflections Amid The American Experiment, relays his transition from drug-dealing wise guy and convict to social worker, professor, world traveler and public policy advocate. He brings these experiences to HGSSS via his continuing interest in education and the improvement of civic life.

  • HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT
    Session 2

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the theories and doctrines that constitute the main paradigms from which economists and policy makers approach the world. The course will cover the contribution of classical economists such as Adam Smith and his contemporaries which is today the theoretical reference point from which other theories have come to define themselves, either by opposing it (Marxian economics), by attempting to reform it (Georgism) or by re-adapting it (Neoclassical school).

    Instructor: Ron Rubin

  • PROGRESS AND POVERTY
    Session 1
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2018.09.19

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

     

    Through an intense and thorough analysis of George’s seminal work, Progress & Poverty, this course will take aim at the fundamental problem of wealth distribution and show that the only viable alternative to “bad capitalism” is not socialism but “true capitalism”; where socially created wealth is put to the service of the community rather than privatized. The course will lay out George’s simple but radical remedy, so that we may avoid the insanity of trying the same solutions and expect different results.
