“Crises Deepen: Shifting Socialisms, Exploding Debt, Strange Elections”
with Richard D. Wolff
May 11th, 2016
Judson Memorial Church, Assembly Hall
239 Thompson Street at Washington Square, Manhattan
These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month. Then Prof. Wolff analyzes several of today’s major economic issues. This month, these will include:
- “Democratic Socialism” declining fast in Europe, rising in US: why?
- Shared lessons of govt debt crises in Detroit, Puerto Rico, and beyond
- Presidential candidates’ economic “programs”: what they are and what they mean for the US
Our goal: 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.
If you primarily access the videos of the monthly updates posted here on YouTube, 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. Contributions to Democracy at Work are tax deductible (we gladly provide receipts at the event or can mail one of requested). For those able to contribute more than $10, our special thanks.
