Aaron Benanav: “Too Many People, or Too Few Jobs? A Critique of Political Demography in the Post-WWII Era”
February 17, 2016 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside LoungeFree
The Center for Cultural Studies presents Aaron Benanav.
Aaron Benanav’s current research examines the global forces giving rise to both an oversupply of labor and an underdemand for labor, worldwide. He has developed a theory of “surplus populations” to explain the consequences of persistently slack labor markets for working people, who have to work even when no steady work can be found.
