The next session of the Philly DSA Socialist Night School is starting up again!

What is Capitalism?

We all know what we're up against: capitalism! But what exactly is capitalism? Is it a thing, a system, or something else? And, why does it persist in spite of the fact that it promotes so much instability, crisis, and suffering?

There are many different ways to understand our economic world, not all of which are compatible. Figuring out exactly what we’re up against is crucial if our goal is to get it right.

Join Philly DSA to discuss theories of capitalism, asking about what capitalism is–and what we should do to challenge it.


The Philly DSA Night School is intended as a forum for discussing thinkers, "-isms," and current trends in socialist politics. All meetings are free and open to the public, and are designed for all people regardless of previous experience. New members are always welcome.

Keep an eye on our Night School website for future events, and feel free to write to me with questions!
