Inside Story Americas – Has capitalism proven its durability?

Quick World News ·Mar 9, 2013

As unemployment in the US decreases and large companies expand their profit margins, we ask if the capitalist system has proven its ability to endure and adapt. Or should Americans be considering an alternative economic system?

Chris Hedges spent two decades as a foreign reporter covering wars in Latin America, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. His latest books are Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, Death of the Liberal Class, and The World as It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress.


Corporate America has Messed with the Wrong People

TheBigPictureRT·Dec 28, 2012

Professor Richard Wolff, New School University NYC, joins Thom Hartmann. Facing salary cuts, Port workers on the East Coast are threatening a strike that could impact the economy to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. We’ll talk about why THIS strike in particular is so important – and how – if it’s successful – it could bring about a future Leisure Society for working Americans.

    Chris Hedges and Professor Wolff flag up most urgent realities that simply cannot feature in the complacent annals of prevalent establishment propaganda. The collapse of the former Soviet commonwealth and its catastrophic transition augured a now endemic and deeply grotesque runaway display of ostentatious Western triumphalism. What we are witnessing today, with its inevitable consequences will not only change the face of the earth, but our fundamental assumptions about humanity and intelligence.
    Unrestrained corporate dominance has proved destructive and disastrous and will bring ruin, because the institutions that society needs to function under the rule of law, are undermined, corrupted, manipulated and dishonoured.
    The world will not sleep forever. We should be prepared not only for the unthinkable, but the unimaginable ~ both for good and ill.

      Is this the future of capitalism? Some positive propaganda for a change! Not everything is failure and decline, nor a bed or roses either, but maybe there are signs of genuine possibilities on the (far-eastern) horizon…of course technology and investment alone are not enough, we also need social innovations that fit the multi-polar bill ~
