with Robert Pollin, on:
Life vs. Austerity
Friday, July 27 The Organ Barn, 7:30 pm
Please join us for a talk and discussion with Robert Pollin, a brilliant radical economist, founding co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute at UMass, Amherst, longtime activist analyst of the perils of casino capitalism, and author, most recently, of Back to Full Employment. Pollin, who has recently been advising the economics team of Syriza, the left party in Greece, will speak on Life vs. Austerity.
As Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, has said, “Pollin lights the way forward with a roadmap for a sustainable economy for generations to come and poses the burning question, ‘If not now, when?’ As a writer and speaker, he is intelligent, inspirational, and—a rarity among economists—accessible for all those seeking passage out of the ‘austerity trap’ delusion.”
Before the Talk, Bob will say some words about his long time friend Alexander Cockburn.
