6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Marglin Book Cover
Join us for the third annual Robert Heilbroner Memorial Lecture. Heilbroner wrote, “Capitalism’s uniqueness in history lies in its continuously self-generated change, but it is this very dynamism that is the system’s chief enemy.” In recognition of what Heilbroner identified as “the deep human need to be situated with respect to the future,” The New School is sponsoring a lecture series in his memory that focuses on capitalism’s future. This year, we will host Stephen Marglin, Walter S. Barker Professor of Economics at Harvard University and author of The Dismal Science: How Thinking Like an Economist Undermines Community (forthcoming January 2008 from Harvard University Press).
