Part I of the Economic Crisis SeriesAdded to the calendar on Wednesday Jul 6th, 2011 6:06 PM
The bedrock of present-day global economic investment and commerce is free markets. The entire conventional understanding of macroeconomics is based on fundamental assumptions about supply and demand. Yet in critical circumstances, such as long-term speculation and health care, those assumptions do not apply. Failing to see this, the “experts” remain blind to the causes of past and future financial, economic, and social crises.
At the root of the economic crisis is the historical process of development of markets and capital.
Sharat G. Lin, Ph.D. is president of the San José Peace & Justice Center. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, India, labor migration, and public health.
