Mike McCarthy: “Dismantling Solidarity”

On Monday, October 2nd, at 12:00pm, the Havens Center for Social Justice is proud to present Michael McCarthy’s talk: “Dismantling Solidarity: Capitalist Politics and Retirement Income since the New Deal.” Why have capitalist markets come to play a growing role in the distribution of retirement income in the US since the New Deal? Drawing on rich archival data that covers more than fifty years of American history, this talk argues that the critical driver was policymakers’ reactions to capitalist crises and their political imperative to promote capitalist growth. The event is free and open to the public.
