No Capitalism Please, We're Historians: The Elusive Role of Profit in the History of Economic Life

On the 6th of November 2018 Mary O'Sullivan, from University of Geneva, gave a paper at All Souls' College Oxford. She made the case for a refocusing of the concept of capitalism in history, in order to put greater emphasis on the relationship of profit to capital and set out an agenda to explore how profits are generated. Her paper will be published in the Journal of Enterprise and Society in December 2018.
