After Capitalism

Hefter Center
University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee
April 25-26, 2014

Even though debate continues over the precise time and place capitalism began, the abstraction of capital in a market economy clearly has a human beginning, one tied to modern historical and global forms and networks of production. But what are the parameters and limits of this human, global, economic/social system? This spring, the Center for International Education’s annual conference investigates questions about capitalism’s history, utility, transformations, and possible end.
