Capitalist Origins and a History of the Present - AS.191.320

Undergraduate students June 1 - July 2 Online
3 Credits Status: Open Save this Course View Saved Courses

The world we inhabit today is thoroughly characterized by the imperatives and tendencies of capitalism. Major problems of our time—extreme inequality in income, wealth, and access to basic goods and services; overpolicing and racist policing; the degradation of non-human nature, which increasingly reacts to human attempts to dominate it; and the constant expansion of oppressive state power both abroad and domestically—are impossible to understand completely without paying attention to capitalism’s constant demand for expansion and its arbitrary segmentation of the working class. This course begins by first grappling with how we should conceive of capitalism as a “mode of production” before turning to the debates over its origins: what was the relationship between the development of capitalism in its “classic” (English) form and the broader trade networks that preceded it? Finally, we turn to the development of capitalism in the United States, emphasizing the capitalist character of both the North and the South and the dependence of domestic production on international trade networks before turning to the long-run development of an American “industrial working class.” Finally, we conclude with a discussion of these themes in relation to present-day issues: the financialization of the U.S. economy; Trump’s election and the waning hold of “progressive neoliberalism”; the severe workplace treatment of undocumented immigrants; and the “escalating plunder” of Congress’s COVID bailout. Together, we will seek to gain a better understanding of how our own worlds are embedded within these larger capitalist processes and are constantly subordinated to the demands of capitalist reproduction.
