  1. A Second Look At Capitalism

    A big second look at capitalism. How it’s worked over time. How it hasn’t. And whether it’s run its course.

    For decades in the Cold War and before, the American conversation on capitalism was pretty well frozen. What do you want? Capitalism or Joseph Stalin? Capitalism or Cuba? Then the Cold War ended and capitalism got the field pretty much to itself.

    Off came the regulations and on came some high times, then, eventually, the crash, the Great Recession. And all kinds of questions.

    A new generation of thinkers is looking hard at capitalism again. Where it’s been. What it’s become. How it’s working – or not.

    This hour, On Point: a big second look at almighty capitalism.

  4. PZ 2005-10-19 - Global Capitalism and Local Culture

    In 1848, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote that under capitalism, "all that is solid melts into air". By this they meant that such was capitalism’s restless force that it had no stopping point. It would sweep away traditional aristocratic, feudal values, but then it would potentially go on and on. They regarded this a good thing, since the destructive energies of capitalism would clear the way for the communist revolution, but how do the peoples of the the third world regard the potential of global capitalism?

  5. Podcast: How Universal Basic Income Could Transform Capitalism - Shareable

    It has been said that it’s easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism. That might have been true a decade ago, but today, the end of capitalism is becoming more and more plausible — at times it feels inevitable. A Harvard University survey showed that the majority of Millennials in the U.S. do not support capitalism.
