Join Raymond Lotta(author of America in Decline and Maoist Economics and the Revolutionary Road to Communism, contributing writer to Revolution Newspaper) for a discussion of trends in the world economy and some of their larger geopolitical implications. How do we understand the rise of China? What about the financial meltdown in the U.S.? Why is there a world hunger crisis? The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989-91 brought about an unprecedented situation for the United States. Never before had an imperialist power enjoyed such singular military dominance. The end of the "cold war" also ushered in a massive new wave of globalization -with U.S. imperialism its main architect and beneficiary. But the world imperialist system has not stood still over the past 15 years. Major shifts have taken place in the distribution of global economic power. New geoeconomic blocs of countries are emerging. It is now the case that U.S. imperialism is not only facing heightened economic pressures but growing strategic challenges as well. Anyone curious about the larger forces influencing world events should find this to be a highly informative and stimulating talk.
