Global Capitalism: February 2017 Monthly Economic Update

Global Capitalism: "Nationalism + Scapegoating 'Foreigners:'
Why Capitalism in Crisis Often Does This" 
with Richard D. Wolff 
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 Wolff analyzes several of today’s major economic issues. For February, these will include:

1. The economics of tearing up treaties (like TPP, Nafta, NATO, etc.)
2. The economics of global interdependence (China, Mexico, Europe etc.)
3. The economics of immigration

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.

    Some people demand they have the power to tell others what to do as in the bankster collapse of the global economy in 2008, subsidies and right to eminent domain for toxic fossil fuel industries, no negotiating medication prices, invading other countries based on lies to name a few. Some people want to be told what to do as in the aforementioned system. And then there’s people who want to work and make decisions together being accountable for any positive or negative consequences — Democracy in the Workplace or WSDEs.
