Capitalist Crisis

EUROZONE CRISIS

Economists of the group Research on Money and Finance (RMF) at SOAS, University of London, coordinated by Professor Costas Lapavitsas, have produced a report on the current crisis titled “Eurozone Crisis: Beggar Thyself and Thy Neighbour?”.

The report claims that the current public debt crisis of peripheral Eurozone countries (Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain) is related to persistent German current account surpluses. RMF proposes either structural reform of European Monetary Union, or exit from the Eurozone.

The report is available at: http://www.researchonmoneyandfinance.org

Social Class

CLASS, SOCIAL MOVEMENTS AND THE NEW POLITICS

From: Janine Marie Lanza: ao1605@wayne.edu

CALL FOR PAPERS: DEADLINE EXTENDED

Class, Social Movements and the New Politics
Thirty-Second Annual North American Labor History Conference
Wayne State University, October 21-23, 2010.

The Program Committee of the North American Labor History Conference invites proposals for sessions and papers on “Class, Social Movements and the New Politics” for our thirty-second annual meeting.

Recent elections have shown the emergence of new political demographics and the increased influence of young voters, progressive voters and workers. New labor alliances have increasingly focused their energies on securing and promoting a fresh understanding of how politics can serve workers. This year’s conference examines the intersection of politics and workers in order to understand how this relationship has developed. We welcome papers that examine this theme broadly: looking at the ways workers participate in politics, define political interests, create electoral alliances and understand their place in a political system.

Please submit panel and paper proposals (including 1-2 page abstracts and brief vitas or biographical statements for all participants) by April 5, 2010 to:
Professor Janine Lanza, Coordinator, North American Labor History
Conference Department of History, 3094 Faculty Administration Building
Wayne State University, Detroit, MI 48202
Phone: 313/577-2525; Fax: 313 577-6987;
Email: nalhc@wayne.edu
Faxed, mailed or emailed proposals accepted.

The North American Labor History Conference is sponsored by the Department of History, the Walter P. Reuther Library, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Wayne State University.
