VIDEO: Austerity America by Al Campbell

In the 1950s and 1960s, wages and productivity went up together. Wages have not grown as a share of the pie since the 1970s. Capitalism will self-destruct if not regulated. We could have another kind of neoliberalism. More articles are available at www.wearemany.org and www.socialistproject.ca.
The myths that nothing can be done since markets are like laws of gravitation and self-regulate like apples falling from trees or that private vices bring public virtue are demobilizing.

Al Campbell PhD is a professor of economics at the University of Utah.
