Time: 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
The 2008 banking crisis, growing class inequalities, and the foreclosure crisis all present challenges for global capitalism. The recession and high unemployment have contributed to the rise of two opposing movements: the Tea Party and Occupy Movement. Join us to examine these recent events, and their relationship to class, the history of labor, and public policy.
Panelists: Rose Brewer, Professor, University of Minnesota Department of African-American & African Studies; Nick Espinosa, Occupy Homes Minnesota Movement; Christopher Phalen, Professor and Chair, University of Minnesota Department of Economics; Peter Rachleff, Professor of History, Macalester College.
Moderator: Catherine R. Squires, University of Minnesota Cowles Professor of Journalism, Diversity and Equality.
