The Center for Communication & Civic Engagement as part of our newest project Rethinking Prosperity invites you to: 

Economic Justice, Sustainability and Transition Beyond Capitalism with Richard Wolff

Growing economic inequality, continuing systemic decline since 2008, and a corrupted politics, on one side, and ecological self-destruction on the other demand basic change. Reforms, regulations, laws have failed to prevent or cure these intertwined crises. More fundamental change is needed. We must transition away from capitalist enterprises - top-down hierarchies where major shareholders and their boards of directors make all key economic decisions. We must move to worker cooperatives that democratize enterprises. They will make the distribution of income much less unequal, respect ecological limits, and free politics from money because profit for a few is no longer enterprises’ “bottom line.”

This event is FREE and open to the public. Registration is required.

Following the talk, there will be an intimate dinner with Prof. Wolff to continue the conversation. Space is very limited and a minimum donation is requested.
