Excellent Conference: Left Forum, New York City, Pace University, March 16-18 2012

I’m participating in the Left Forum as part of the Panel focused on Anarchism’s Post-Capitalist Vision.

Abstract:
With the rise of Occupy Wall Street, which was initiated by anarchists and people inspired by anarchist politics, people might ask the perfectly logical question: “What do anarchists have to offer us in place of capitalism and the state?” This panel discussion focuses on the many anarchist post-capitalist visions, attempting to provide some broad answers to that question. We will talk about the major proposals anarchists have put forward and link them to anarchist practices of resistance and creation and analyses of the present. Similarly, we will discuss debates and work within the anarchist milieu conceptualizing post-capitalism. This discussion will be centered around pieces on anarchist vision in the new book, “The Accumulation of Freedom: Writings on Anarchist Economics” (AK Press).

My co-authored chapter (with Professor Colin Williams ) in this book is titled: Escaping the Capitalist Hegemony by re-reading the Economic Landscapes of the Western World.
