How does the fiscal cliff relate to the broader economic crisis?

A:

Unrestrained capitalism transfers income and wealth from working people to the 1%; this process results in periodic asset bubbles and economic crises. We need to build a strong labor movement that restrains the voracious behavior of corporate elites and to reinstitute strong government regulation of the financial industry. But we can’t build an economy that works for all of us until we get corporate money out of politics and restore transparency in government.
