Global Capitalism: October 2016 Monthly Economic Update

Global Capitalism, Monthly Economic Update

"A Looming Crisis: Major Candidates Ignore It"

 Co-sponsored by Democracy at Work, Left Forum & Judson Memorial Church

These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month, then Prof. Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For the month of September, these issues will include: 
1.  Corporate and government debt huge + real wages flat = trouble;
2.  Inequality + consumers unable to spend = looming crisis;
3.  Crisis looms + gov't desperate = gov't spending + worker coops rise.
Our goal: To develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others. We open the floor to questions and comments when time permits. 
If you access the videos of these monthly updates posted on YouTube and our websites, we ask you to join our attendees who contribute at least $10 at each monthly update to help defray costs of producing, video-taping, and distributing these videos. Please contribute by using the "donate" button below. Contributions are tax deductible, and we can gladly provide receipts in person if requested.

    “Maine is poised to make history by being the first state to approve ranked-choice voting. This means you’ll no longer have to hear the insufferable “spoiler” argument if you opt for a third-party candidate. This is incredibly important because—if this ballot initiative is successful—it could create a domino effect, and more states might follow suite. This could be a game changer in American politics and loosen the grip both the Democratic and Republican parties have on our democracy.” (5:03)
