Does economics need a rethink?
Our national debate isn’t on a pathway to solutions. It’s on a pendulum… back and forth: Do we have more government or less government? More of social services or less of social services? Raise taxes or lower taxes? These arguments don’t end. Why does economics need a rethink? Because we’re having the wrong arguments.
This class will ask, could better ideas about what passes for economic fundamentals make capitalism more fair in its outcomes and less needy of government intervention? Is it actually possible to retire some of our political debates?
The instructor, Stephen Taft, has worked for decades on Wall Street managing others peoples’ money. Over that time, he delved into economic studies to help him cut through the chatter that drives many investment choices. What he found there is a misbegotten justice. He is eager to share his findings.

HENRY GEORGE AND THE CHINESE QUESTION
Join us for a contextualized re-examination of George’s stance on Chinese labor.
In the late 1880s, the railroads and Western Union controlled the flow of information from California as well as to California. We also know that railroads were the primary users of coolie labor. As a result, while Californians thought they were fighting against the importation of slave labor, people in the East thought Californians were discriminating against the Chinese. This webinar re-evaluates George’s take on the Chinese question in the light of the prevailing collusion between media giants and railroad corporations.
