INEQUALITIES AND THE PROGRESSIVE ERA – BREAKTHROUGHS AND LEGACIES

11:30 AM | Friday, November 13th

Join us for an interactive book presentation webinar on the Progressive Era.

In this special webinar, Professor Guillaume Vallet will introduce his newly published work “Inequalities and the Progressive Era – Breakthroughs and Legacies”, featuring contributions from many authors, each exploring a facet of inequality during the ‘Progressive Era’ (1890s-1930s). Though it is most associated with the United States, the “Progressive Era” corresponds to a vibrant historical period in which profound changes and progress were achieved or expected all over the world.

Speaker

Guillaume Vallet is an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Grenoble Alpes, and Research Fellow at the Centre de Recherche en Économie de Grenoble (CREG) and the Institut de Recherche pour l’Economie Politique de l’Entreprise (IREPE), France. Guillaume is also a researcher at the Geneva based Institute of Sociological Research (ISR).

You can purchase a copy of Guillaume’s book on ElgaronlineAmazon, and Google Play

    RAYMOND MOLEY – A GEORGIST IN FDR’S INNER CIRCLE?


    When the economy and financial system of the United States seemed on the verge of collapse in the early 1930s, Columbia University professor Raymond Moley found himself the leading figure within Franklin Roosevelt’s Brains Trust. He was but one of a sizeable but scattered community of intellectuals and activists who had read and to some extent embraced the analysis of political economy contained in the works of Henry George. This lecture will examine George’s profound influence on Moley’s thinking.
