Workshop on Saturday: Introduction to CPE’s Political Economy Analysis
Introduction to CPE’s Political Economy Analysis
Teachers: Zhongjin Li and David Eisnitz
Saturday June 7 2-5PM
Springfield, MA at the Pioneer Valley Central Labor Council at 640 Page Boulevard
Today’s economic crisis raises profound questions about the nature of the dominant
economic model — free-market capitalism. The struggle for a new world requires many
things, and one of them is an understanding of the current economic system. This
participatory workshop serves as an introduction to CPE’s approach to political economy. We
will provide tools for analyzing the structure and dynamics of the U.S. capitalist system, and
explore the various ways the pursuit of profit contributes to economic instabilities, inequality,
and ecological destruction. We will also identify changes in the dominant economic
ideologies and forms of capitalism in 20th century U.S. history, making connections with our
own histories and with other major social movements.
