OCCUPY ECONOMICS

with Jerry Friedman, Professor of Economics at U. Mass Amherst

Rebroadcast of a program that originally aired on 1/18/2012

 

Topics for discussion include "What's wrong with economics?", why past and
present economic theories such as "methodological individualism" and
institutionalism just don't cut it, and what an economics for the 99% might
look like.

 

Gerald Friedman is a professor of Economics at the University of
Massachusetts at Amherst.  He received his BA in Economics from Columbia in
History and Economics in 1977 and after working for a year at the ILGWU he
went on to earn his PhD from Harvard in Economics in 1986.  Since then he
has been teaching at the University of Massachusetts where he teaches the
mega-lecture introduction to microeconomics to 420 students at 8 in the
morning.  He is the author of several books on the labor history of the
United States and Europe, most recently of Reigniting the Labor Movement:
Restoring Means to Ends in a Democratic Labor Movement, and has consulted
with unions and groups advocating for single-payer health care.
