Is there a better way to organize society than the predator/prey system of
capitalism?  Is there a way to achieve socialism without creating a
totalitarian society? Or, is it true, as British Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher said, that "There is No Alternative"?  Professors Gar Alperovitz
and David Schweickart have both outlined their visions for a post-capitalist
world in their books, America Beyond Capitalism: Reclaiming Our Wealth, Our
Liberty, and Our Democracy and After Capitalism.  Join us for a lively
discussion about what a post-capitalist world will really look like. 

Directions: From the main MIT entrance on Mass Ave (#1 Dudley Sq/Harvard Sq
bus), enter under the dome.  Walk straight ahead down the long corridor on
the first floor, past courtyard, and take a right into Building 4.  Room
4-149 is on your left.  There will be signs to help.
