The Future of Capitalism

Dates:
  • Mon 21 Oct 2019 09.30 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-10-21 9:30 2019-10-21 17:00 Europe/Paris The Future of Capitalism

Capitalist economies are undergoing rapid changes, leading to new grievances and the revival of old challenges in a new guise. Economic inequalities approach the levels of the Belle Époque, injecting new life into questions about the justifiability of capitalism. Technology changes the way we work, providing new opportunities but also rekindling doubts about capitalism’s ability to provide fulfilling forms of employment for all. Increasing market concentration and new business models challenge assumptions about markets and competition. In light of such developments, there is a pressing need for work in normative political theory that engages closely with the major economic issues of our time. Is a just capitalist society possible at all? Which institutional reforms are most promising? Which alternative economic arrangements might prove preferable? This workshop brings together philosophers, economists, historians of ideas, lawyers, and political scientists to discuss normative issues in the economy. A principal aim of the workshop is to establish a dialogue between scholars from different perspectives. Participation is free but places are limited. Please send an email to [email protected] if you want to participate. Deadline for registration is 15 October 2019.
