Clara Mattei Talk

Harrison Hall 111

Clara E. Mattei is Associate Professor in the Economics Department of The New School for Social Research, and was a 2018-2019 member of the School of Social Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Studies. Her research contributes to the history of capitalism, exploring the critical relation between economic ideas and technocratic policy making. She recently published her first book, The Capital Order: How Economists Invented Austerity and Paved the Way to Fascism (University of Chicago Press, November 2022). It investigates the origins of austerity after the WWI crisis to understand its logic as a tool of reaction against alternatives to capitalism. She is currently working on a book project which critically reassesses the Golden Age of Capitalism (1945-1975) and its Keynesianism through the lens of austerity capitalism.
