Michael Hudson on the Ancient Near East

Wednesday, 1 April 2015 - 5:30pm to 6:00pm

We discuss Hudson’s soon to be released book Labor in the Ancient World, on the manner in which incentives were provided to build public works. Also the battle between rulers, the evolving banking system and the resultant tensions to maintaining community cohesion.   

Check Michael's website, the Ancient Near East tag and his books, including the last book in this series Debt and Economic Renewal in the Ancient Near East
