Objective economic analysis is difficult to come by in this heated political moment, with deep budget cuts that disproportionately affect the poor and working class while the top one percent of Americans continues to amass wealth at a record pace.
Professor Richard D. Wolff’s academic work and public lectures warning of a crisis of capitalism preceded the current disaster. In this event, Wolff discussed the fallout of the economic collapse and the ongoing struggle over who will bear the massive costs.
This event was hosted by The New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs (GPIA) on March 30, 2011. Truthout was a co-sponsor of the event along with US Uncut and Pacifica’s WBAI.
