Chris Williams and Michael Roberts: Covid-19 and the crisis of capitalism. Can Modern Monetary Theory solve it?
May 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Speakers: Former MP Chris Williamson and Michael Roberts, Marxist economist
Part of our webinar series: Learning from Marx
The Covid-19 outbreak has demonstrated vividly the failure of neo-liberalism and the market economy. Working class people will have to pay a high price for this failure and we are already in a recession. How ‘normal’ are such crises for capitalism – and can Modern Monetary Theory provide a solution? Come along to hear former MP Chris Williamson, who believes that MMT “offers us an achievable way forward” and Marxist economist Michael Roberts, who believes that MMT “is neither modern, nor is it a theory”.
