In "Laws of Capitalism," a new video series for the Institute for New Economic Thinking, Board Member and Edwin B. Parker Professor of Comparative Law Katharina Pistor breaks down the history, process, institutions, and participants involved in the legal coding of capital. She demonstrates how private actors have harnessed social resources to accumulate wealth to generate both economic inequality and inequality in the law.

The seven-part video lecture series guides viewers through the process of the legal construction of capitalism. Each episode includes supplementary materials.
