Committee on Global Thought

In an age of global finance and neo-liberal policies, when powerful elites around the world are deeply allied by mutual self-interest, the idea that one nation exercises economic power over another is less relevant than other forms of emerging hegemonies. This symposium features David Harvey, Distinguished Professor at the City University of New York; Sitaram Yechury, the Parliamentary Group Leader for the Communist Party of India; Prabhat Patnaik, Jayati Ghosh, and CP Chandrasekhar, Professors of Economics at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi; Jomo Kwame Sundaram, U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development; and Duncan Foley, Leo Model Professor of Economics at the New School for Social Research.
