$22.00 (USD)

This Left Forum panel is chaired by Leo Panitch (York University) and features Doug Henwood (Left Business Observer), Jane D’Arista (Financial Markets Centre), Chris Rude (writer), and David Harvey (Graduate Center, CUNY).

Panelists define and explain the inner workings of capitalism that have led to an unfolding global crisis. Participants look specifically at housing, sub-prime, and other critical dimensions of our global financial system. They also speculate on why there is no labor uprising–as well as suggesting some solutions.
