Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Dr. Parenti provides a critique of capitalism as the driving logic of empire, which motivates global exploitation and growing inequality everywhere. While contemporary economics typically defends the benefits of free-market capitalism, Parenti argues that global capitalism is run by and for transnational corporations. While any good that exists within the Capitalist State is the result of hard won labor and democratic struggles against the owners of Capital.

"Parenti encourages attendees to think beyond dominant ideologies, and argues for the critical necessity of engaged citizens who are committed to a cooperative idea of the good society." (program)

Lecture was funded by the Carrol C. Hall Endowment Fund. The fund aims to further educate young Americans on capitalism as an economic system and philosophy.
