"Contending Interpretations of Economic Crisis: Neoclassical, Keynesian, and Marxian"

 

This week's Pizza & Prof features Stephen Resnick of the Economics Department.

 

The first part of the talk will compare and contrast the neoclassical and Keynesian explanations for and what to do about today's economic difficulties. The rest of the time will be devoted to discussing what each misses in its explanation  and why that common omission matters to our lives.
