I can't stand Nick Gillespie but then again I never threatened to punch 
him the mouth like Vivek Chibber (or at least supposedly did.)

Capitalism: A Debate

November 3 at 7:30pm at the historic Great Hall at Cooper Union

*Media inquiries: Jason Farbman, publicity at jacobinmag.com*

/*Capitalism: A Debate*/ is co-sponsored by two magazines, Jacobin 
(socialist) and Reason (libertarian), and will debate the following 
question: *Is capitalism the best way to improve standards of living, 
ensure political and economic freedom, and provide opportunity?*

/Capitalism: A Debate/ has clearly struck a nerve, coming at a moment 
of surging interest in Socialism among younger generations. Nearly 1,000 
tickets sold out within hours, our waiting list is growing by the day, 
and we expect a livestream audience in excess of 100,000.

Moderated by *Michelle Goldberg*, columnist for the */New York Times/*

*Jacobin* side:

*Vivek Chibber* is a professor of sociology at New York University and 
the co-editor of /Catalyst: A Journal of Theory and Strategy/. His 
latest book is /Postcolonial Theory and the Specter of Capital/.

*Bhaskar Sunkara* is the founding editor and publisher of /Jacobin/.

Reason side:

*Nick Gillespie* is editor-in-chief of Reason.com and Reason TV.
