Does radical economics matter?

Does radical economics matter? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the relevance of radical economic analysis today and how radical perspectives could help us understand the global economic crisis. More than 20,000 activists participated in the weeklong U.S. Social Forum in Detroit. What useful tools can activists learn from such gatherings to build alternative models at the grassroots? And as mainstream economics has lost it credibility, have radical economists gained attention? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
