The Economy after Covid - a series of three lectures (Part I)
Michael Roberts examines how far capitalism’s ‘normal’ crisis trends are now re-asserting themselves
These three keynote lectures will provide a Marxist analysis of economic developments in the aftermath of Covid. In this first lecture, Michael Roberts will examine how far capitalism’s ‘normal’ crisis trends are now re-asserting themselves.
In the second lecture, Professor Costas Lapavitsas will consider how far governmental responses to Covid, both direct and financial, have exacerbated inequalities of development both within the EU and globally. Finally, Professor Jonathan Michie will focus on Britain and the need for genuinely democratic strategies for industrial and regional regeneration in place of those being currently developed by the Johnson government. All lectures start at 7 pm and will be delivered via zoom.
