Mutualist Reading Group #4 - "Advocates of Freed Markets Should Oppose Capitalism"


We're finally cracking open the famed Markets Not Capitalism. We'll start with "Advocates of Freed Markets Should Oppose Capitalism" by Gary Chartier. It's Chapter 9, page 107. This piece has very large footnotes (almost half the page!) so feel free to ignore those as you read; the piece is only about five pages long without them. We'll discuss various conceptions of capitalism and talk about why the left shouldn't bundle market exchange together with the ills of capitalism.
