Please join us on Tuesday, October 30, at 7:00 pm in the Hatfield Room of the Library, Willamette University will be hosting a talk by Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin entitled “The Crisis of Global Capitalism: A Left Perspective.” Both authors are well known political economists, historians, and activists. Panitch is the editor of the Socialist Register and the author of The End of Parliamentary Socialism among many other works. Gindin was a research director for the New Democratic Party in Manitoba and was a regional research director of the Canadian Auto Workers’ Union. Both men are now professors at York University and have recently co-authored The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire. Their talk promises to be an eye-opening analysis of the ongoing crisis and of the prospects for progressive politics.
The talk is co-sponsored by the Departments of Anthropology, Economics, Environmental Science, History, Politics and Sociology.
Please urge your students to go and we hope to see you there!
