Live From City Lights
Program #WOLR006. Recorded in San Francisco, CA on September 12, 2012.
David Barsamian and Richard Wolff present their book Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism at the historic City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. The book hit a nerve and is now in its 3rd printing. Prominent economist Richard Wolff and AR Director David Barsamian probe the root causes of the current economic crisis, its unjust social consequences and what can and should be done to turn things around. They reach back to the 1970s when the capitalist system itself shifted, ending the century-old pattern of rising wages for U.S. workers and thereby enabling the top 1% to become ultra-rich at the expense of the 99%. In this recording Wolff provides his latest views on the systemic economic problems in the United States in light of events in Greece, Spain and the Eurozone crisis. Lively interaction with audience questions.
