Global Capitalism: Live Economic Update – July 2020
As US Capitalism Shakes, US Socialism Renews
Topics: mass unemployment undercuts US capitalism: tenants can’t pay rents, landlords can’t repay banks, employers close permanently; Trump vs Biden: neither are solutions, the choice is a symptom of system decline; what old socialist responses to today’s crisis would be; what new socialist solutions to today’s crisis could be.
In addition to Wolff’s discussion of the main topics above, he will also cover the following issues at the July 8, 2020, event: why US capitalism has needed racism, and and how it has used it; why US current protests against racism and police violence are so strong.
