|Barsamian to speak at Cross and Crown
David Barsamian, the founder and director of Alternative Radio and author of “Targeting Iran,” will speak at Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in Rohnert Park on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m.
He is best known for his interview books with Noam Chomsky, including “What We Say Goes.” On Sept. 19, he will discuss his interviews with Richard D. Wolff, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Massachusetts, and Visiting Professor at the New School University. He also is the author of “Capitalism Hits the Fan.”
Today’s economic crisis is capitalism’s worst since the Great Depression. Millions have lost their jobs, homes and healthcare, while those who work watch their pensions, benefits, and job security decline.
As more and more are impacted by the crisis, the system continues to make the very wealthy even richer.
In eye-opening interviews with prominent economist Wolff, Barsamian probes the root causes of the current economic crisis, its unjust social consequences, and what can and should be done to turn things around.
His new book, “Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism: Interviews with Richard Wolff,” will be available for sale.
