THE BRUCE INITIATIVE AT UC SANTA CRUZ PRESENTS: Rethinking Capitalism

Three decades of advances in financial economics have transformed global markets.  As a matter of theory, the valuing of options (financial products) became increasingly central to understanding the market in any commodity; as a matter of politics questions the direction and to better understand what is new, and what is not, about conceiving of capitalism as a whole in this way.  This conference brings theories of economic value and regulation into conversation with the study of culture, institutions, ethics, history, geography, and theology.  Its aim is to consider in what ways capitalism is producing a future that is unlike its past.
This event is made possible by the Bruce Initiative for Rethinking Capitalism and co-sponsored by the UCSC Division of Social Sciences, UCSC Institute for Humanities Research, and UCSC Colleges 9/10.  For further information and to join our mailing list visit our website http://www.rethinkingcapitalism.org/
