Prof. R.D. Wolff's Global Capitalism: October 2015 Monthly Update



Published on Oct 15, 2015

Global Capitalist Downturn Yet Again

Judson Memorial Church
Assembly Hall
239 Thompson Street at Washington Square, Manhattan

Co-sponsored by Democracy at Work, Left Forum, and Judson Memorial Church

These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month. Then Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For this October 14, these will include:

1. Volkswagen: Scandal for Capitalism, Germany and Beyond
2. Bad US Job Numbers; Wages Stagnate; Prices Fall….Downturn Looms
3. Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Corps/Govts Do Their Trade Deals

When time permits, we open the floor to questions and comments. Our goal: to develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others.
