"Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism"

When: Monday, September 10 2012 @ 07:00 PM -
Where: San Jose Peace and Justice Center
48 S 7th St
Description: Author David Barsamian will be here to speak on his new book "Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism", co-authored with Richard Wolff.

Today's economic crisis is capitalism's worst since the Great Depression. Millions have lost their jobs, homes and healthcare while those who work watch their pensions, benefits and job security decline. As more and more are impacted by the crisis, the system continues to make the very wealthy even richer. In eye-opening interviews with prominent economist Richard Wolff, David Barsamian probes the root causes of the current economic crisis, its unjust social consequences and what can and should be done to turn things around. While others blame corrupt bankers and unregulated speculators or the government or even the poor who borrowed, the authors show that the causes of the crisis run much deeper.

David Barsamian is founder and director of Alternative Radio and author of Targeting Iran. He is best known for his interview books with Noam Chomsky, including What We Say Goes.
