Live Webcast With Raymond Lotta
"Behind the World Economic Crisis: System Failure & the Need for Revolution"
- Want to know why capitalism is facing its most serious economic crisis since the Great Depression?
- Want to know why the problem is not that the banks are too big to fail but that capitalism is too big a failure for world humanity?
- Want to know why no one in their right mind should want to rescue or reform this exploitative and plundering system…and why only socialism can solve problems like racism, health care, and the environment?
Then you need to hear Raymond Lotta and participate in a unique live webcast.
In October 2008, when the global banking system was facing possible collapse, the Agence France-Presse went to the German finance minister, a former U.S. Treasury official, and Raymond Lotta for comment. Raymond Lotta is a Maoist political economist and communist revolutionary. His book America in Decline was reviewed in Foreign Affairs. He has given talks at UCLA, Harvard, and Howard, as well as in London and Mexico. An activist-scholar, Raymond has been part of anti-globalization conferences and protests in India, the Philippines, and Canada.
