“Democracy Rising: Neoliberalism and Social Unrest: From the Arab Spring to Occupy to the Case of Syriza”
Creston Davis, PhD in Partnership with European Alternatives & The Brooklyn Commons 

GCAS (Global Center for Action Studies) is pleased that the renowned economist, Richard Wolff will be speaking in our “Democracy Rising” workshop at the Brooklyn Commons this Saturday at 11 am. The event is free and open to the public (with a suggested donation of $10 that will go to support Democracy at Work).

Livestreaming will be available at http://thecommonsbrooklyn.org/node/770

Capitalism is relocating to new centers in China, India, Brazil, etc. In its old centers, e.g., the US, economic prospects darken. Middle and lower incomes stagnate. Multinational businesses and those they enrich force governments to lower taxes on them and then either raise personal taxes, cut public services or both. Severe decline results (Detroit, Greece, etc) punctuated by severe cyclical downturns. But alternatives exist. Changing the organization of our enterprises offers a way to a far better future.

The question that grounds this workshop focuses on democracy, financial capitalism and social organization.

FOR CREDIT: The cost of this workshop is $150 (credit) for 13 sessions (see syllabus below) and there are no prerequisites. You may take this course at the Brooklyn Commons or remotely (online) in our live interactive e-school platform. If you miss a lecture you may view it later and even contribute to the conversation/discussion after the live session.

Featured Professors/Activists: Lindsey K. Aliksanyan, David Allen, Mark Bergfeld, Aris Chatzistefanou, Noam Chomsky, Manos Cizek, Francesca Coin, Lisa Duggan, Silvia Federici, Chris Hedges, Srecko Horvat, Azfar Hussain, Maria Nikolakaki, William I Robinson, Oliver Stone, Leonidas Vatikiotis, Richard Wolff and others TBA.

    It is by far as a result of blogs being very long to comprehend and sometimes I get sidetracked. It is good but next time make it easy. I found something that you might like and that is this http://www.angeljackets.com/products/Gotham-Camren-Bicondova-Jacket.html. Inspired from television series, so check it out.
