Global Capitalism: Live Economic Update

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

The Economics of Taxing Wealth
- Current proposals by Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren
- How US already taxes wealth (of some, not others)
- How other countries tax wealth
- How US enables/allows wealth to escape taxes
- Redistributing wealth: pros and cons

In connection with Wolff’s discussion of the main topic above, he will also cover the following issues at the November 13, 2019, event:
1. The protest movements in Chile, Lebanon and beyond and how they differ from those in Hong Kong
2. The overdue critique of “libertarian” capitalism

These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month. Then Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. Our goal is to develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others. When time permits, we open the floor to questions and comments.

Requested Fee/Donation: $10 per person. 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 event to help defray costs of producing, video-taping, and distributing these videos. Please contribute via our donate page. Contributions to Democracy at Work are tax deductible (we will gladly provide receipts at the event). For those able to contribute more than $10, our special thanks.
