Economist Rick Wolff examines how and why capitalism's crisis following the sub-prime lending debacle is actually deepening - not nearing an end as reported by most media. Additionally, Wolff explains how the social impact of that crisis in the US, Greece, Spain, and beyond are building to a historic change in our world.

Richard D. Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he taught economics from 1973 to 2008. He is currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University, New York City. He also teaches classes regularly at the Brecht Forum in Manhattan.

The event is co-sponsored by the University of Vermont's Economics Department.
