How can we shift our economic structure to be more equitable and humane?
Please join Transition Berkeley for a short film: “How Class Works”, an animated overview by Richard Wolff. The film will be followed by a talk and discussion led by local author and distinguished Marxist scholar Richard Lichtman, who has taught at UC Berkeley, SF State, and the Wright Institute. His topic will be Marxism 101: Capitalism and Democracy - Can They Co-exist? Is capitalism the root cause of the climate crisis? How can we shift our economic structure to be more equitable and humane? If capitalism is the problem, what alternatives do we have? We’ll discuss these issues and more.
Meet and greet at 6:30 pm before the film. Bring healthy vegetarian snack or a refreshment to share if you can. The program begins at 7:00 pm.
