The Crises of Capitalism [Good Article]

30 Nov

Because econ can be fun (no really), check out this awesome RSAnimate video about the crises of capitalism (more specifically, the recent “Great Recession.”)

The speaker argues that the only long term solution lies outside of capitalism.  What do you think?

See the video here.

THE BEST EVENT OF THE YEAR [Student-Faculty Dinner]

29 Nov egg-roll

It’s a an all encompassing generic “holiday” party.

It’s an all-you-care-to-eat Chinese buffet dinner.

It’s only $5 for students.

It’s everything good, ever.

It’s a great way to relax before the “final” push.

It’s deep fried, sautéed, coated, battered, dipped, and drizzled.

It’s the Student-Faculty Dinner at Chalin’s Restaurant, Wednesday, 12/12/12 from 5-7pm.

And you’re invited.

Hey UHPers!

Mark your calendars for this Monday, December 3rd from 7-9pm in the UHP Townhouse on Foggy Bottom because the UHP SPA is hosting an end-of-the-semester event that will feature pizza (free food!), candy (sugar to power through those research papers!), and – wait for it – CHAIR MASSAGES! This event is open to all UHP students and we cannot wait to see you there. Swing by early to make sure you can grab some pizza, hang out with your favorite SPA, and sign up for a free chair massage.
