The Politics of Value

Thu November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Jane Collins
Professor of Community & Environmental Sociology and Gender & Women’s Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The Great Recession not only shook Americans’ economic faith but also prompted powerful critiques of economic institutions. This timely book explores three movements that gathered force after 2008: the rise of the benefit corporation, which requires social responsibility and eschews share price as the best metric for success; the emergence of a new group, Slow Money, that fosters peer-to-peer investing; and the 2011 Wisconsin protests against a bill restricting the union rights of state workers.
Presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Book Festival.
