The Origins of Modern Debt Politics in Greece and Rome – Reading Michael Hudson’s “The Collapse of Antiquity”, Part 5

25 January, 2024 20:00 (London time)

Our reading group on “The Origins of Modern Debt Politics in Greece & Rome – Reading Michael Hudson’s ‘The Collapse of Antiquity”, moderated by Christian Walter, has been meeting regularly since September and will finish on January 25 at 20:00 (London time) with a very special event. Please join us for the last session with economist and author Michael Hudson to talk about his monumental work in which he “overturns what most of us were taught about Athens and Sparta, Greece and Rome, Caesar and Cicero, indeed about kings and republics,” and “exposes the roots of modern debt peonage and crises in the greed and violence of antiquity’s oligarch-creditors, embedded in their laws, which in the end destroyed the civilizations of classical antiquity.”
