Talk: Samir Sonti presents "Labor and the Politics of Inflation, Past and Present"
Join us when Samir Sonti, assistant professor at the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies, discusses how the arrival of inflation during the pandemic has spurred considerable debate over both the causes of rising prices and the optimal means of achieving price stability. In the mid-twentieth century, inflation stood as one of the most contested political issues, and it was one with which the labor movement was, by necessity, deeply engaged.
