Richard D. Wolff, professor of economics emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, will be the guest in the pulpit at Temple Emanuel of Great Neck on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m.
He will offer the talk, “Capitalism’s Crisis Deepens.”
Wolff is currently visiting professor at the New School University in New York.
His recent work has concentrated on analyzing the causes and alternative solutions to the global economic crisis.
His groundbreaking book, “Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism,” inspired the creation of Democracy at Work, a nonprofit organization dedicated to showing how and why to make democratic workplaces real.
Wolff is also the author of “Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism and Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It.”
He hosts the weekly hour-long radio program “Economic Update,” which is syndicated on public radio stations nationwide, and he writes regularly for The Guardian and Truthout.org.
Wolff appears frequently on television and radio to discuss his work, with guest spots including “Real Time with Bill Maher,” “Moyers & Company,” “Charlie Rose,” “Up with Chris Hayes,” and “Democracy Now!”
His newest book, “Capitalism’s Crisis Deepens,” makes the case that the crisis should be grasped not as a passing moment but as an evolving stage in capitalism’s history.
Wolff’s talk is preceded by a brief service.
Following his talk, there will be a Q&A, refreshments and booksigning.
All members of the community are invited to attend.
Admission is free.
Temple Emanuel of Great Neck is located at 150 Hicks Lane in Great Neck.
