Causes of and solutions to Economic Recession/depression and financial meltdown
I teach political economy at the Evergreen State College and have been active in diverse social movements since the late 1960's. I continue to believe in and work for an economic system based on human dignity for all, where poverty and exploitation are abolished, and where work is meaningful and fulfilling. I believe another system is possible that is sustainable and where cooperation, self-management and solidarity are fostered; i.e., a participatory socialist alternative to capitalism.
