Since the start of the year, Richard Wolff, visiting professor of economics in the graduate program in International Affairs, has been offering his sharp critique of the excesses of global capitalism in the op-ed section of the UK’s Guardian.
Wolff’s weekly column focuses on the causes and consequences of the financial crisis in the United States, applying a neo-Marxist analysis to persistant structural economic inequalities. His recent articles include The Revenge of Trickle-Down Economics, and How the Rich Soaked the Rest of Us.,
Author or co-author of more than ten books, including Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It (Olive Branch, 2009), Wolff has also taught at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Yale, CUNY, and the Sorbonne.
