    COMPARATIVE CAPITALISM

    In this course, we present variations of modern capitalism by comparing and contrasting the dominant model to its other counterparts.

    The word capitalism lends itself to broad generalizations that highlight the importance of private property and free markets as the supreme arbitrator of economic outcomes. However, national trajectories give form to many varieties, suggesting that history, culture and institutions do play a major role in shaping markets and organizing society.

    In this five-session course, we present cross-country variations of modern capitalism by comparing and contrasting the dominant Anglo-American model to its other counterparts.

    The Green New Deal – What is it and How do we Par for it?

    Join us for an interactive panel on the Green New Deal – the bold and radical plan to transform the American economy.

    A radical plan to decarbonize our economy and address climate change commonly known as the New Green Deal is becoming a hot public policy issue in America. But questions as to what the Green New Deal really is, and whether we could afford it; do not always command easy answers and generally tend to arouse the most passionate controversies.

    This panel of distinguished speakers will present three different takes on the Green New Deal and, ask whether it holds the potential for transitioning the US economy towards a greener and more sustainable future.

    UNDERSTANDING THE BOOM-BUST CYCLE

    This course looks at how repealing the Gold Standard has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption.

    Upheavals in how the U.S. economy operates have transformed Americans from wealth creators to creative borrowers. This course looks at how the repeal of the Gold Standard, a bulwark of the world economy since the Industrial Revolution, has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption. We will look at how this change, combined with an unprecedented wave of deregulation has caused a disconnect between speculative finance and the real economy, massive inequality and systemic instability.
