Is Fixing the U.S. Economy Just Political Will?

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

Sign up for a three-session online webinar/seminar series with Steve Max, DSA Vice Chair and founder of the Midwest Academy community organizing school.

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?

Participants are urged to attend all three sessions because they each build on the prior sessions. Dropping out is OK, entering in the middle is not.   

Seminar dates: September 11, October 9, and November 10.

NOTE: seminars are scheduled for 9pm Eastern, 8pm Central, 7pm Mountain, 6pm Pacific.

THIS SEMINAR SERIES IS CLOSED AT THIS TIME.

· 37 rsvps

 

Join DSA member and labor historian Susan Hirsch in discussing Union Maids (1976). Nominated for an Academy Award, this documentary follows three Chicago labor organizers (Kate Hyndman, Stella Nowicki, and Sylvia Woods) active beginning in the 1930s. The filmmakers were members of the New American Movement (a precursor of DSA), and the late Vicki Starr (aka Stella Nowicki) was a longtime member of Chicago DSA and the Chicago Women's Liberation Union. It’s available free on YouTube, though sound quality is poor. 8ET/7CT/6MT/5PT.
