Lectures On Gramsci

Piero Sraffa is one of my favorite economists. I have been listening to a couple of mp3 files. Piero Sraffa appears in the stories these lecturers have to tell, and rightly so.

The lecturers don't bring it up, but apparently Sraffa did not make a big deal out of his heroic anti-fascist work. Nicky Kaldor, who knew Sraffa for decades, apparently didn't find out about the side of Sraffa's life mentioned in these lectures until after Sraffa's death.

My Space has an entry for Antonio Gramsci.
