Capitalism IS Crisis


The Crisis of Capitalism & Resistance from Below

A public forum with Joel Geier, Marxist economist and associate editor of International Socialist Review magazine

Thursday, Feb 3rd • 7-9pm

Grace Place • 637 S. Dearborn Street

Around the world, economies are being wrecked by crisis. In addition to the trillions of dollars handed over to Wall Street, the governments of Ireland, Greece, and Portugal required similar bailouts while Spain and Italy are also seeking a way out of the financial crisis.

Of course, working class people everywhere are being forced to pay for the crisis; through joblessness, wage-cuts, and the slashing of social services. Likewise, these austerity programs have provoked fightbacks from hundreds of thousands of workers and students across Europe. And in Tunisia and Egypt, people have overthrown the bloated, corrupt governments that oversaw skyrocketing food and housing prices.

But, how can we understand the roots of the crisis; beyond the soundbites, headlines, and lies? Hear Joel Geier, a long-time Marxist economist, discuss the evolving crisis and prospects for global capitalism.
