Conceptualizing Capitalism Workshop and Call for Papers: Deadline August 1

Please join YSI for the YSI Finance, Law, and Economics Working Group for a Workshop on Geoffrey Hodgson's book Conceptualizing Capitalism. 


We will host three online sessions on the book before we meet for three days in Budapest. There will be an online kick-off meeting for those interested in reading the book and participating in the workshop on August 2, 12PM EDT (no preparation required for this meeting). On August 31 and October 3, 12 PM EDT we will meet online with Geoffrey Hodgson to discuss the introduction of the book and chapters 1-3 (Aug 31) as well as chapters 4-5 (Oct 3). Please find further details here


The bulk of the workshop will be hosted as part of the conference Piecing Together a Paradigm in Budapest from October 19-22, 2016.


Participants are encouraged to buy and read the book before the conference. Those participants who participate in all 3 sessions in preparation for the conference and attend our workshop in Budapest will receive a 50% refund on the purchase price of their book.


We encourage you to submit an abstract for a paper to be presented during our working group meetings in Budapest. Preference will be given to those abstracts that engage with Hodgson’s framework of the role of law in financial capitalism. The deadline for the abstract submission is August 1.
