Raymond Lotta and Glenn Loury to Debate at Brown University, March 21
Socialism vs. Capitalism: The Way Forward in the 21st Century
On Wednesday, March 21, an important debate will be taking place at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. It will feature Raymond Lotta, political economist and advocate for Bob Avakian's new synthesis of communism, and Glenn Loury, economic theorist and author of works on the mass incarceration of Black youth. The debate is sponsored by the Janus Forum and Political Theory Project at Brown and will start at 7 pm. The Janus Forum has put out this announcement:
"The Occupy Movement has brought increasing attention to questions of injustice and inequalities in U.S. society. It has also opened up a conversation about the nature and future of capitalism, and whether there are viable alternatives to the present system. Two provocative thinkers−one a conventionally trained academic economist of progressive sensibility, the other a voice of revolution and communism−come together to explore and debate the question of capitalism vs. socialism."
