Thursday, 14 October 2021 - 7:00pm
Email: library@marx-memorial-library.org.uk

These three keynote lectures will provide a Marxist analysis of economic developments in the aftermath of Covid. In the second lecture in the series, 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.

This will be followed by a third and final lecture in which 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.
