On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Karl Polanyi Institute of Political Economy, Robert Kuttner, co-founder and co-editor of The American Prospect will present his lecture "Another Polanyi Moment: Must we repeat the 1920s?"
After World War II, the nations of the West, having learned from a bitter history, managed to harness capitalism in a broad collective interest and reclaimed democracy. When financial elites threw off that harness in the neoliberal era, the political repercussions were all too familiar. Can we save democracy and a decent economy when the two projects are linked?
This event is presented by Karl Polanyi Institute of Political Economy in collaboration with the School of Community and Public Affairs. Free and open to the public.
