This is a discussion seminar. Each session will start with short presentations by Harriet Fraad and Richard Wolff following by discussion among all participants utilizing interactive software.
We are confronted today by a global, viral pandemic and a global capitalist crash. Illness, death, fears about both, and isolating social lock-down have arrived without adequate preparation but with profound psychological effects. The failure to prepare for such a situation also triggered the latest capitalist crash (the 3rd since 2000 after the dot-com crash in 2000 and the sub-prime mortgage crisis in 2008). Today’s economic devastation now rivals the worst in capitalism’s history, namely the Great Depression of the 1930s. We are thus forced to endure 2 simultaneous depressions, one psychological and one economic. They worsen each other, yet also open the space for social movements for basic social and personal change.
