Tacoma DSA Reading Group: Marx’s Capital Illustrated

September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

Join the Tacoma DSA Reading Group for the final installment in our three-month series diving into “Marx’s Capital Illustrated” by David Smith and Phil Evans. Published more than a century and a half ago, “Capital” is Karl Marx’s seminal text detailing the inner workings, horrors, and contradictions of the capitalism system—and most importantly, a roadmap for overcoming it.

Since many of the attendees from the previous meeting had already finished this book, I’ve also linked three relevant articles below. This may also be a good option if you don’t think you’ll be able to secure and finish the book in time since the articles function as a good summary of the main themes.

Please get into contact with me at education@tacomadsa.org if you want a copy for $5. First come, first serve since I’m only able to order a handful at a time. Or you can order directly from Haymarket, where it is currently only $10.50 (link below). We’ll be covering pages 143 to the end at this meeting.
