Rethinking Capitalism Weekend Intensive | Bennington
Economics where People and the Environment matter.
This two-day seminar includes discussion on some of the most pressing economic issues facing The World today.
Topics include inequality, insecurity, climate change, state capture, the federal budget and a campaign for a fairer
and more sustainable economy, drawn from modern monetary theory and ecological economics.
Adapted from a university economics subject, the course is divided into ten units, most of which feature a 20-30 minute introduction, a 10-15 minute video and at
least 20 minutes of small-group discussion. The timetable is subject to minor changes, but this will give some idea of the scope of the course.
Associate Professor Steven Hail, Lecturer at Torrens University Australia and Economist at Modern Money Lab.
