Online meeting with Q&A: The economics of capitalism: wages and money
18 August @ 8:00 pm-9:30 pm
This week: The economics of capitalism: wages and money
Where does wealth come from? How did it come about that most of us can only survive by working for wages? What is the role of trade unions in capitalist society?
What is money and what does it represent? If banks can print more money when there’s a crisis, does that mean money isn’t really real? Does it mean we can have as much of it as we want if we take over the printing presses?
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.
