As an occasional guest at PASMC events, political economist Jack Rasmus always has a unique perspective on the national and world economy, and on Sunday, June 12, we will again seek his view of what to look for and what forces will operate that could determine our economic future. Dr. Rasmus's talk is entitled, "Why the Global Economy is Slowing and the U.S. Is Heading for Another Recession".
Dr. Rasmus will cover themes such as downward economic trends around the world, and the manipulation of facts and figures sometimes employed by official entities to dress up the numbers. He will of course focus on the U.S. economy and offer a not-often seen picture of our job market, investment trends and consumption trends, resulting in a situation of slow growth.
What are the causes? What part of what Dr. Rasmus calls the "epic recession" of 2007-2009 has to do with a slow economy? What kinds of policies are in place that hinder a healthier situation? He will try to answer these questions and more on June 12.
With a new set of national elections coming up, he also will offer prospects that a new administration and Congress might face - and a picture of an electorate poised to register its dissatisfaction with the economic status quo.
Dr. Jack Rasmus has a Ph. D in Political Economy and teaches economics and politics at St. Mary's College in Moraga. He is the author and producer of various fictional and nonfiction works...the latest of which, from earlier this year, is called "Systemic Fragility in the Global Economy". Dr. Rasmus will have copies of the book to sell at one-third off the regular price.
The June 12 event is at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, 300 E. Santa Inez Avenue (at Ellsworth - the side on which people should enter) in San Mateo. Admission is free, contributions will be welcome. The UUSM is wheelchair accessible.
