From Thomas Piketty’s bestseller Capital in the 21st Century: “It is surely no accident that money—at least in the form of specific amounts—virtually disappeared from literature after the shocks of 1914–1945.” This class wants to return an understanding to writing not only of wealth but also economics as a whole. It will explain the key ideas of Piketty’s book and provide basic instruction on the key concepts of economics, a field that has been dominated by mathematics for thirty years and is only now returning to its proper place: politics. A twenty-first century writer should feel at home in economics (yes, that’s a pun). About half of the class will be writing workshop.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
