From Washington DC to Daly City California, gridlock is setting in. Socialists have long warned about the dangers of the cyclic crises which are a characteristic feature of the capitalist system. Democrats and Republicans are telling us an “all-cuts” budget is the only solution. However, this is now being met with a kind of rank and file opposition from workers unprecedented in recent times. Join us for a discussion on these matters featuring labor economist Jack Rasmus. Jack will share some of his proposals for a working class response to the jobs, housing, and state and cities fiscal crises that he has suggested in his recent published articles in 'Z' magazine and his recent books: EPIC RECESSION: PRELUDE TO GLOBAL DEPRESSION, Pluto Press (2010), and OBAMA's ECONOMY: RECOVERY FOR THE FEW, Pluto Press (2011).
