    This reading group will discuss some theories of debt. We will read recent texts that treat the creditor/debtor relationship as vital to social systems. The concept of Debt will be explored in historical, ethical, economic, and political contexts, including how it effects people today.

    The reading group will include selections from: David Graeber’s Debt: The First 5,000 Years, Maurizio Lazzarato’s The Makings of the Indebted Man, Christian Marazzi’s The Violence of Financial Capitalism; the works of some economists such as Michael Hudson, Steve Keen, and Ellen Brown; plus other essays and studies as they surface. Participants are encouraged to bring related materials that link up with the concept of debt to add to the reading list.

    The length of the reading group and the frequency of its meetings will be determined based on interest and convenience.
