Agitate for Change

Change depends on us.

by Stephen Lendman

Sitting on the sidelines accomplishes nothing. Indifference isn't an option. Nothing important changes without public involvement and activism. "We the people" must show we mean it.

Doug Dowd is an economic historian, economist, and political activist. At age 94, he's slowed, but still active, vibrant and committed for long overdue change.

He's a radical economist in the best sense of the term. His academic career spanned six decades. He's still writing books and articles. He discusses cutting-edge economic, political and social issues.

His recently published book is titled "Inequality and the Global Economic Crisis." Vital issues covered include:

  • class, political, racial, and gender-based inequality;

  • big business and inequality;

  • inequality worsened by consumerism and media manipulation;

  • globalization's unintended consequences;

  • inancialization caused inequality;

  • militarism and inequality;

  • inequality's overall consequences for democracy, the economy, and social decency; and

  • comparing inequality in America and Western Europe.

His previous book was titled "At the Cliff's Edge: World Problems and US Power." He believed then and now that world societies stand on "a cliff's edge."
