February 17, 2016 – Aaron Benanav: “Too Many People, or Too Few Jobs? A Critique of Political Demography in the Post-WWII Era”

Aaron Benanav’s current research examines the global forces giving rise to both an oversupply of labor and an underdemand for labor, worldwide. He has developed a theory of “surplus populations” to explain the consequences of persistently slack labor markets for working people, who have to work even when no steady work can be found.

Aaron Benanav is a lecturer of History at UC Los Angeles and editor of Endnotes, a journal of political theory and history.
