Join the Bangor League for a discussion of Crack-Up Capitalism: Market Radicals and the Dream of a World
Without Democracy by Quinn Slobodian.
Crack-Up Capitalism follows the most notorious radical libertarians—from Milton Friedman to Peter Thiel—around the globe as they search for the perfect space for capitalism. Historian Quinn Slobodian leads us from Hong Kong in the 1970s to South Africa in the late days of apartheid, from the neo-Confederate South to the former frontier of the American West, from the medieval City of London to the gold vaults of right-wing billionaires, and finally into the world’s oceans and war zones, charting the relentless quest for a blank slate where market competition is unfettered by democracy.
The book group meets at the Bangor Public Library. If you would like to join by Zoom, please email Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
