DescriptionThe years that bookended the collapse of the Soviet Union were a time of great economic turmoil: perestroika and economic collapse rapidly gave way to privatization, new informal economies, and the rise of neoliberal capitalism. Panelists at this discussion, the first in a series sponsored by the After the End of History research project at the Neubauer Collegium, will consider the ultimate consequences of these transformations in economic life. How did they shape society, politics, and conceptions of the collective? And to what extent did this period of tumult influence the world we inhabit today?
