Richard Wolff: Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It
"Wolff offers a rich and much needed corrective to the views of mainstream economists and pundits. It would be difficult to come away from this withwith anything but an acute appreciation of what is needed to get us out of this mess"  Stanley Aronowitz

Capitalism Hits the Fan differs sharply from most other explanations by politicians, media commentators, and academics. Step by step, Wolff shows that deep economic structures account for the crisis. Government bailout interventions have thrown too little money too late at a problem that requires more than money to solve we must now ask basic questions about capitalism as a system that has now convulsed the world economy into two great depressions in 75 years (and countless lesser crises, recessions, and cycles in between).    

"Richard Wolff has produced something I thought was impossible. He has  shown in its entirety the model of today's global economy in a  methodical and coherent way. While the facts mentioned are well known the perfect continuity and conclusions are as unbelievable as they are unarguable."

Richard Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and currently a Visiting Professor at the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York.  He has a PhD in Economics from Yale University as well as degrees from Harvard University (history BA) and Stanford University (economics MA). Wolff has authored or co-authored 10 books, over 50 scholarly articles and 75 popular articles.  >rdwolff.com<

The recent documentary based on Capitalism Hits the Fan has been called "an electrifying explanation of how the American Dream evolved into the 'Nightmare on Wall Street.'"
