Marxist-Humanist Initiative convened a conference on “The Economic Crisis & Left Responses” on November 6, 2010 at Pace University in lower Manhattan. The conference was conceived as a way of promoting critical dialogue on both the Left’s theories of the recent crisis and recession and the practice that flows from these theories.
A number of materials have been gathered together on this website –- including conference papers and a video recording of the entire conference –- to help extend and deepen the dialogue opened at the conference. Click here for an article, “Economic Crisis Conference Featured Wide Participation and Debate,” which provides an overview of conference proceedings and links to these materials.
We make this space available for our readers to discuss conference presentations, theoretical controversies that emerged at the conference, and the themes of the conference broadly. We hope to have wide-ranging dialogue, not only so that all views can be heard but also so that we can test different ideas in debate and work out answers to the questions we face at this moment.
