The IS tradition in political economy

Those in London who like Marxist economics might be interested in attending an International Socialism journal seminar with Alex Callinicos, author of An Anti-capitalist Manifesto, The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx and The Resources of Critique on 'The International Socialist tradition in political economy'.

6.30pm, Friday 30 January. Room 629, Birkbeck university, Malet Street, London WC1

'At this, the first in a series of seminars organised by International Socialism journal, Alex will set out the analysis of capitalism first developed by Tony Cliff, Mike Kidron and others associated with the journal. He will consider its strengths and weaknesses in relation to later analyses that emerged from the 1970s onwards, such as those developed by Ben Fine, David Harvey and Robert Brenner.'
