"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. In the most timely way possible, Wolff now offers a new rallying vision of an alternative, radically better economic system that could become a means to mobilize a broad and inclusive social movement - one that would transform every individual's daily life and the entire structure of our society: Democracy at Work.
Richard Wolff has shown in its entirety the model of today's global economy in a methodical and coherent way. While the facts mentioned are well known, the perfect continuity and conclusions are as unbelievable as they are unarguable.
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<
