Part II of a series of talks on the Economic Crisis

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.

Donation: $5 - $10 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

I'll tell you where the jobs have gone. They've gone to south east asia and south america because 99% of California is too wimpy to ignore the politicians and struggle for either their right to work to survive in this fucked up place. God forbid we organize some big ass shit to knock this motherfucker down one day and actually do something rather than act like shits just a mystery why we don't have this and that. We wouldn't want to be emulating the way people handles their shit else where in the world because we thinki we better than everybody else. Shit, that's that's probably the reason why we havin everything taken away from us, because we think were too good to organize and riot like the French and Greek people. At least it feel good to know some people have pride else where in the world and are not a bunch of prideful pushovers like CA is.

And CA is supposed to be the most radical state in the U.S. GET OUT!
