“Wolff offers a rich and much needed corrective to the views of mainstream economists and pundits. It would be difficult to come away from this with anything but an acute appreciation of what is needed to get us out of this mess” — Stanley Aronowitz
One year ago Richard Wolff thrilled a jam-packed audience in Berkeley with his talk Capitalism Hits the Fan. He differed sharply from most other explanations by politicians, media commentators, and academics by revealing step by step exactly how deep economic structures account for our fiscal crisis, daily life and the entire structure of our society.
An urgent question has arisen from that growing global audience: what new rallying vision of an alternative, better economic system could become a means to mobilize a broad and inclusive social movement? What do we propose? A basic social change that would transform every individual’s daily life and the structure of our society as a whole— Democracy at Work
Richard Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and currently a Visiting Professor at the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York. He has a PhD in Economics from Yale University as well as degrees from Harvard University (history BA) and Stanford University (economics MA). Wolff has authored or co-authored 10 books, over 50 scholarly articles and 75 popular articles. rdwolff.com
