After so much technological progress, why do we have to work more than ever before? How is it that the harder we work, the poorer we end up compared to our bosses? When the economy crashes, why do people focus on protecting their jobs when no one likes working in the first place? Can capitalism survive another century of crises?
Our newest book, entitled Work, addresses these questions and a great many more. To answer them, we had to revisit our previous analysis of employment and develop a more nuanced understanding of the economy. We spent months studying obscure history and comparing notes about how we experience exploitation in our daily lives, slowly hammering out a grand unified theory of contemporary capitalism.
Join us for a high-energy discussion of how capitalism has changed over the past several years and what it means for workers. We’ll scrutinize recent examples of resistance in the US and overseas to propose anti-capitalist strategies for the 21st century.
The event will be at 7pm on Friday, October 28th, at Boxcar Books (408 e. 6th st, Bloomington, Indiana). Free!
