Sebastian Budgen sent me this advert:

The International Socialist tradition in political economy

An International Socialism journal seminar with Alex Callinicos, author of An Anti-capitalist Manifesto, The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx and The Resources of Critique. 6.30pm, Friday 30 January. Room 629, Birkbeck university, Malet Street, London WC1 At this, the first in a series of seminars organised by International Socialism journal, Alex will set out the analysis of capitalism first developed by Tony Cliff, Mike Kidron and others associated with the journal. He will consider its strengths and weaknesses in relation to later analyses that emerged from the 1970s onwards, such as those developed by Ben Fine, David Harvey and Robert Brenner. For more information phone 020 7819 1177 or email isj@swp.org.uk

This should be a really interesting seminar by a Tory Marxist, a pity I cannot attend (as I am not a rich academic, so far).

Perhaps somebody will write a good report on it. It looks like it will be a really "spectacular" event, or at the very least, a spectacle.

Since I don't have an economics degree anymore than Alex Callinicos does, I feel uniquely qualified to enter into debate with him. But I guess I'll have to hold that over, until I finish my Phd, whenever that is.
