Global Capitalism: Love Economic Update is our series of bi-monthly lectures in New York. Programs begin with 45 minutes of updates on recent events, then a Q&A session with the live audience. We hope to develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others. We ask those who view our videos online to join us on Patreon to help defray the costs of producing the series, and access archived videos of GCLEU.

Understanding Marxism is Prof. Wolff's most recent and Democracy at Work's first publishing project. Why should we pay attention to the great social critics like Marx? American, especially now, confront serious questions and evidences that our capitalist system is in trouble. It clearly serves the 1% far, far better than what it is doing to the vast mass of the people. Marx was a social critic for whom capitalism was not the end of human history. It was just the latest phase and badly needed the transition to something better. We offer this essay now because of the power and usefulness today of Marx’s criticism of the capitalist economic system.
