On Tuesday, November 11 at 7:30 PM, economist Dr. Jack Rasmus will speak on "America's 3-D Economy: Debt, Deflation, Defaults" and the emerging Global Epic Recession. Dr. Rasmus will also be available that evening to sign his latest book, "The War at Home," which details the corporate offensive from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush, and the economic legacy of the Bush years.
The timing of Dr. Rasmus' talk, immediately after the presidential election, will offer fertile ground for outlining the economic program of whoever wins on Nov. 4th. Also, here is an opportunity for an in-depth examination of the crisis facing Wall Street and what it all means for Main Street.
Jack Rasmus, Ph.D., is a political economist and author of several books on the U.S. economy. His works include the aforementioned "The War at Home," and a forthcoming book, "The Trillion Dollar Income Shift - Essays on Income Inequality in America," about the origins and causes of that inequality.
Dr. Rasmus is also a freelance journalist, writing widely on U.S. economic and domestic policy topics, and has published numerous articles in Z Magazine, In These Times, and other periodicals. He is also an author of several stage plays, including "1934," a musical about the San Francisco waterfront during the 1934 maritime and general strikes, and "Lockout," about contemporary labor conflicts.
Before undertaking a writing and speaking career, Dr. Rasmus was an economist and markets analyst for a number of years with various companies; also an elected National 1st Vice President for the National Writers Union, and an elected local union President, business representative, and organizer for several labor unions, including the Communications Workers of America, Service Employees International Union, Hotel and Restaurant Workers Union.
