Naeem Inayatullah presented “Two to Tango: the seductions of capitalism” at Skidmore College, April 3, 2017.

The talk assesses the strengths and weaknesses of capitalism seen as a culture.  It highlights and troubles those elements that we seem unwilling to endorse as well as those that we seem happy to condemn.  Rejecting facile gestures and bypassing the usual cant, it aims to make what is familiar about capitalism seem strange as well as to bring home what seems alien.  The hope is to clear the ground for debating capitalism's cultural values.

The talk can be read here: http://faculty.ithaca.edu/naeem/Talks/
