Two major alternative Marxist theories of economic crisis are

(1) the tendential decline in rate of profit as developed by in Marx, CAPITAL, Vol. III, Chs. 13-15, online here: https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1894-c3/ch13.htm ;

(2) Overproduction/underconsumption, as found in Luxemburg, ANTI-CRITIQUE, Ch. 1 (The Questions at Issue and first few pages of next chapter), online here: https://www.marxists.org/archive/luxemburg/1915/anti-critique/ch01.htm

This meeting will examine these two theoretical positions in terms of both the causes of crises and what is needed to overcome them and capitalism itself.
