This panel discussion with Michael Hudson, Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis, and New Testament expert Dr. Aliou Niang at the People’s Forum earlier this month. It’s a meaty Passover/Easer offering on the history of debt cancellation and as important, how that’s been central to important ancient records like the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Rosetta Stone, yet that information has curiously never been mentioned. It’s as if the idea of debt cancellation is worse than bestiality.
So far, I’ve listened to the first 30 minutes, in which Michael Hudson describes the findings of the scholars he’s worked with on the economics of ancient societies. Even though I’ve read a great deal of Hudson’s work over the last eight years or so, there were still bits that were new to me. Im looking forward to hearing what Drs. Theoharis and Niang say.
Dr. Hudson said he appreciated that there were NC readers who attended this talk in person.
