Your Call 093008 Global capitalism and its discontents

What is capitalism? And how is the current crisis changing the way you understand the basic structure of our economy? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about economic crisis in the US and its long-term effect on capitalist economies. The current financial meltdown has sparked a debate on whether capitalism is the ideal methodology for wealth creation. What do you think? Is this the end of global capitalism, as we know it? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests: Robert Brenner is the director of the Center for Social Theory and Comparative History at UCLA, and the author of The Boom and the Bubble.

J. Bradford DeLong, Professor of Economics at UC Berkeley

"Greatest crisis of our time" and Congress is taking days off for Rosh Hashonah?

Reminds me of the Iraqi government taking their summer break in the middle of crisis.

What's good for the goose...
