Radical economist Richard Wolff’s most recent book, Capitalism Hits the Fan, is a passionately concerned response to current events, chronicling Wolff’s brilliant public response to what he sees as an unworkable economic system. He closely monitors international economic shifts, much as Noam Chomsky does political happenings, and presents us with clear new perspectives.
“Richard Wolff is the leading social economist in the country. This book is required reading for anyone concerned about a fundamental transformation of the ailing capitalist economy.” – Cornel West
“A powerful and challenging vision that takes us beyond both corporate capitalism and state socialism. Richard Wolff at his best!”
—Gar Alperovitz, author American Beyond Capitalism
Professor of Economics Emeritus from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Wolff is a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs at the New School University in New York. In recent years he has been delivering public lectures at colleges and universities, and community centers and trade union gatherings. His speaking style has become famous for its charismatic wit, frankness, and sardonic charm.
Richard Wolff is the author of many books, including Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism, Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism, as well as Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It. He hosts the weekly hour-long radio program Economic Update on WBAI (Pacifica Radio) and writes regularly for The Guardian, Truthout.org, and the MRZine.
