Dec. 3-4: Teaching Inclusive Capitalism

The following comes to us from Robert Ashford.  For more information, including details about the agenda and registration, go here.

Inter-Collegiate Seminar on Teaching Inclusive Capitalism in Key Undergraduate Courses Throughout the Curriculum

Friday - Saturday, Dec. 3-4, 2021 | 1 - 4 p.m. ET

Purpose and Background

This seminar will share progress made and explore next steps in the continuing effort to teach widely in colleges and universities the following principle of fuller employment and its many important implications:

A broader distribution of capital acquisition with the future earnings of capital creates the rational expectation of a broader distribution of discretionary capital income in future years (to people with a higher propensity to consume) and therefore greater incentive to employ more labor and capital in earlier years.

A growing number of professors of economics have characterized this principle of fuller employment as “the most important contribution to economic theory in many decades: an idea with many practical, beneficial policy implications for both current and future generations” [Letter from Professors of Economics in Support of Inclusive Capitalism.]

A key motivation for this new form of Inclusive Capitalism is the need to fundamentally address the current and growing trends in income inequality and environmental destruction.

This two-day virtual event will bring together professors of economics and other disciplines from Assumption University, Eckerd College, Rutgers University, University of South Florida, Syracuse University, and Virginia Tech to discuss the creation of a teaching and research agenda centered around Inclusive Capitalism.
