Contemporary Capitalism

School of Consciousness and Transformation ANTH 6198 3.00

All you ever wanted to know about capitalism but you were too exploited to ask. This course will offer an introduction to political economy from a Marxist perspective. It introduces students to radical approaches to political economy, and offers a critical perspective that provides an alternative to conventional economic theory as well as to more economic determinist versions of Marxian political economy. Can there be such a thing as a free market? What is ""globalization?"" Does capitalism have an “outside?” And what on earth is “overdetermination?” This course provides an understanding of economic processes and larger contexts of exploitation and domination.
