Production for Subsistence Lecture Video Posted

It is important that people acquaint themselves with the content and subject matter of Sraffa’s book Production of Commodities by Means of Commodities. Accordingly we are video streaming lectures of the book on a chapter-by-chapter basis.  It is important that people get access to Sraffa’s book; you can get an early Indian version here.

You can find a video introducing this on the Heretical Sraffa Youtube Channel here. The video streamed  lectures are on The University of Tulsa media site (not the Heretical Sraffa You Tube Channel) and Chapter I Production for Subsistence can be seen here.

These lectures have both video of the lecture and more importantly a screen shot of powerpoint slide shows.  You can independently download the slides here. These slides are open-sourced so feel free to use them liberally (just do the right thing and give credit where credit is due…let’s reject the unscrupulous aspects often exhibited in academic economics and demonstrate a new way to move our science forward, collaboratively and with the development of the science as the first goal…)

You should be able to view both the slideshows and video on a computer and on devices, but you may have to download the Mediasite Mobile App which you can get on their website here.
