Is Fixing the U.S. Economy Just Political Will? - Changed Date

Monday, November 24, 2014 at 09:00 PM · 63 rsvps
Online - web-based seminar

No, some things can be fixed but others can't. 

Sign up for the final session (DATE IS NOW November 24!) of our three-session online webinar/seminar series with Steve Max, DSA Vice Chair and founder of the Midwest Academy community organizing school.

Steve will recap main lessons from the first two seminars in the series. (If you signed up for the first or second session -- don't sign up again. But we are accepting new RSVPs.)

This seminar is part theory, part recent history and part contemporary observation from a Marxist viewpoint.  The presentation style is easy to follow and no particular background is needed. We'll note the surprising views of a few enlightened capitalists and discuss how the U.S. became a debtor nation, how profits from financial speculation outpaced manufacturing, and the big question: how might the jobs come back?

NOTE: seminar is scheduled for 9pm Eastern, 8pm Central, 7pm Mountain, 6pm Pacific.
