The Association for the Promotion of Political Economy & the Law (APPEAL)’s next session of their “What Is Capitalism?” Reading Group will discuss workplace injury and illness, the question of worker’s constitutional rights to protection, and what this shows about the legal underpinnings of capitalism. The sessions will feature Professor Michael Duff (University of Wyoming Law, visiting at St. Louis University Law), who is an expert on U.S. workers’ compensation law and labor law.
All are welcome, and participants need not attend each session, though they do ask participants to read the materials in advance. They also encourage participants to join APPEAL by signing up as a member, www.politicaleconomylaw.org.
They will send an electronic copy of the paper to those who register in early September; for questions, email [email protected] with the subject line Capitalism Reading Group.
