  • Tribute to Professors Samir Amin and Thandika Mkandawire

    The "Saturdays of Economy" are an initiative of ARCADE supported by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation

    Professor Samir Amin would certainly have seen in the coronavirus pandemic a new illustration of the implosion of monopoly capitalism, which has become an obsolete system and a danger for the survival of humanity.

    We associate with this tribute that of another eminent thinker who passed away in 2020 and who was very close to him. It is Professor Thandika Mkandawire, former Executive Secretary of CODESRIA, a position he held on the recommendation of Professor Samir Amin. A great intellectual complicity and a deep friendship bound these two eminent thinkers.
