Description:

In this presentation, Romero speaks to a changing economy and a crisis in capitalism; one motivated by a global “race to the bottom” and increased automation of labor.

 

Romero provides a brief summary of agrarian and industrial-based economies, bringing us into the current moment; where advanced robotics and computer programs drive workers out of both “blue collar” and “white collar” jobs.

 

Are we looking at a future without jobs? What are the potential advantages and pitfalls of restructuring society around increased automation?

 

Presentation includes multimedia and readings of poetry.


Purpose:

 

This presentation seeks to help students understand the impact that automation has had on society and the continuing impact it will have on Late Capitalism; moving us into Post-Capitalism.
