Capitalism Hits the Fan – Richard Wolff

Capitalism Hits the Fan – Richard Wolff is the item mentioned in the previous post Professor Victor Wallis Speaks on the “Roots of the Current Crisis.”

I have found many links and videos of Richard Wolf and his topic. This particular video was recorded at Brown University, Providence RI, December 12, 2009. I have watched about an hour so far of the 1 hour 45 minute video below. There are about 7 minutes of introduction before you get to Richard Wolff. This is so important that I wanted to post the video, even before I finished watching the whole thing.

Well, I have now finished the whole thing and all I can say is Wow!

I have never seen the root causes of our current societal situation put together in quite the way that Richard Wolff does. It makes a lot of sense. You may experience a number of Aha! moments. (I think I will just have to forgive a tiny bit of mathematical hocus-pocus that he used in the beginning to make one exaggeration.) (I know I am a sucker for a good sales pitch, but even if you don’t buy it, it ought to make you think. By the way, he is not necessarily selling you a solution, so there is nothing to buy.)
