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.
Request: If you access the videos of these monthly updates via our website or YouTube, 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. To those able to contribute more than $10, our special thanks.

Only a propagandist would use the word Capitalism. And nearly all of those avoid the use of a very real economic term, Socialism. Why?
Something does create inequality, chaos, and potentially disastrous outcomes. Socialism ‘creates’ inequality, chaos and disastrous outcomes, as governments ratchet up more regulation, more chaos and more selection of who is permitted to succeed and who is to fail. Bear Stearns, & Lehman must be allowed to fail, and GM, AIG, Goldman must NOT be allowed to fail
I had hoped that this site would be balanced and honest but it is merely another tentacle of the top 1%, essentially FAKE Economics.
