“Wolff offers a rich and much needed corrective to the views of mainstream economists and pundits. It would be difficult to come away from this with anything but an acute appreciation of what is needed to get us out of this mess”

- Stanley Aronowitz

 

One year ago Richard Wolff thrilled a jam-packed audience in Berkeley with his talk Capitalism Hits the Fan. He differed sharply from most other explanations by politicians, media commentators, and academics by revealing step by step exactly how deep economic structures account for our fiscal crisis. daily life and the entire structure of our society: Democracy at Work.

An urgent question has arisen from that growing global audience: what new rallying
vision of an alternative, better economic system could become a means to mobilize a broad and inclusive social movement? What do we propose? A basic social change
that would transform every individual’s daily life and the structure of our society as a whole— Democracy at Work
