Left Forum: Post-Financial Crisis: Neoliberalism and the Global Economic Recovery

3:00 p.m. - 4:50 p.m.
Left Forum
Department of Sociology

New York, NY 10016

What is the relationship between the financial crisis that began in 2008 and the problems facing the real economy of the United States and the world today? For some, the words "financial crisis" are used to describe the continuum of events since 2008; others have called it a "crisis of capitalism," seeing it as a culmination of long-term trends; while others have focused on asset bubbles, financial deregulation, or various macroeconomic policies and imbalances. This panel, which was part of the Left Forum conference, looked at how this question is addressed from different points of view.

Participants included:

* David Harvey—Anthropology, CUNY Graduate Center; Author, A Companion to Marx's Capital
* Doug Henwood—Left Business Observer
* Mark Weisbrot—Center for Economic and Policy Research
