The 2008 ‘financial crisis’ was a systemic fraud in which the wealthy finance capitalists stole trillions of public dollars all over the world. No one was jailed for this massive crime, the largest theft of public money in history. Instead, the rich forced working people across the globe to pay for their ‘crisis’ through punitive ‘austerity’ programs that gutted public services and repealed workers’ rights.
Capitalism Is The Crisis shows this very nature of the global economy, visits the protests against it, revealing revolutionary paths for the future. Special attention is devoted to the situation in Greece, the 2010 G20 Summit protest in Toronto, Canada, and the remarkable surge of solidarity in Madison, Wisconsin.
