May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Plaut Room

All are welcome to join this monthly discussion of books on current and historical world events and international culture.  This month’s book is: The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition by Jonathan Tepper and Denise Hearn.  We have the illusion of choice, but for most critical decisions, we have only one or two companies.  Every day, the average American transfers a little of their pay check to monopolists and oligopolists.  The Myth of Capitalism is the story of industrial concentration and how it matters to everyone, because the stakes could not be higher. Why is the US becoming a more unequal society, why is economic growth anemic despite trillions of dollars of federal debt and money printing, why the number of start-ups has declined, and why are workers losing out?  These are the questions the The Myth of Capitalism explores.
