Dynamics of capitalism: Conference in Hamburg on Karl Marx’s 200th anniversary

A joint conference by the Hamburg Institute for Social Research (HIS) and the MPIfG from May 3-5, 2018, held on the occasion of Karl Marx's bicentenary, addressed key aspects of Marxist political economy. Concepts such as money, work, profit, value, market, violence, technology, property, and class were the basis of discussions on the extent to which Marx's teachings are still significant for today's economic systems. Ten podcasts from the conference are available which include lectures by Thomas Piketty, Wolfgang Streeck, Axel Honneth, and Friedrich Lenger as well as presentations by Jens Beckert, Kean Birch, Marion Fourcade, Greta Krippner, Dave Elder-Vass, and Aaron Sahr. more
