IMPORTANT PUBLIC MEETING SOON with Jim Stanford




JIM STANFORD WILL PRESENT

THE 2009 E.L. ‘TED’ WHEELWRIGHT LECTURE TOPIC: BEYOND THE ECONOMIC CRISIS:


HOW THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM CAN BE CHANGED


* what caused the crisis?

* its real impacts

*what should be the response?

* how we can change the economic system for the better

“It seems that every progressive demand from social change activists quickly runs into opposition from the assumptions and conclusions of orthodox economics: ‘we can’t risk a deficit’. ‘Markets just don’t work that way’. ‘Free trade always works’. And above all: ‘There is no alternative’.

To counter these standard arguments, and arm ourselves with out own arguments that change is not only possible but necessary, we all need to learn economics.

We must demystify the doctrine, and take it back from the so-called ‘experts’. In short, economics is too important to be left to the economists.

This talk will highlight the key themes and methods of a progressive, activist-based approach to deconstructing and re-learning economics.”

Dr Jim Stanford, Economist, CAW
