Read Picketty’s Capital w/ Quinn Norton

“We’ll be reading Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century over February and March., as the Capitalism’s Winter Reading Group. If you think that sounds a little like 2009’s Infinite Summer, I’ll just remind you that great artist steal. (If you don’t know about Capital in the Twenty-First Century, follow a few of the links above. It’s pretty interesting.) Here’s how it’ll work: Next week, the second week of February, is going to be just the introduction and Chapter one, to give people time to get the book, audiobook, library copy, pirated edition, or whatever, and join in. I’ll post an open thread for each chapter during the week for us to discuss the book as we go along. I’m estimating 3-4 hours a week of reading time — not impossible, but a commitment. At that rate, we should have this 700 page behemoth done in eight weeks. That will get us finished just in time for spring, and new ideas after assimilating Piketty’s voluminous ideas. If that seems a little fast, just go slower! If you’re late, join in! The discussion spaces will stay open for a while.”
