  1. Rick is prescribing economism! He over looks class struggle.

  2. Kalovski Itim, you are right on target. Of course you are absolutely correct that he negates class struggle, and in fact puts forward an economist program in the second part of his talk. He is a professor of economics rather than a proletarian revolutionary.

    So for that reason I’m more interested in what he has to say about the current economic crisis in the first part of his talk. I find the fact that he explains the crisis in rather straightforward terms to be pretty helpful in popularizing a Marxist view of it, and that’s why I posted the video.
