Online meeting with Q&A: The economics of capitalism
4 August @ 8:00 pm-9:30 pm
Why is it that countries like Britain and the USA, which are amongst the richest and most powerful in the world, have handled the present health crisis so badly?
Why is it that inequality continues to grow exponentially? Why does our environment continue to degrade? Why do wars continue to be fought? Why is there unemployment and poverty in even the richest countries? And why do all these phenomena persist despite the advances in technology that should enable us to solve all the important problems of humanity?
How does the way we produce the things we need to survive relate to all these questions, and what can we we about it?
Dr Ranjeet Brar, aka the Moats Medic, will address the meeting, giving an introduction to the basic economics of the capitalist system, and members of the Workers Party will be able to log in and make contributions or ask questions via zoom during the following Q&A.
