More About Capitalism In Crisis

Watch Short: “America: How Do We Get Our Mojo Back?”


Jim Sawyer reflects on the Trump Presidency. These reflections examine an economic system based more on self-interest rather than on the public good. Jim views stagnant incomes, growing inequalities, winner-take-all outcomes, and Trump winning the 2016 presidential election as visible signs of our crisis.

We welcome you to reflect on the Trump years in office with insights provided by videos produced by Capitalism In Crisis with Jim Sawyer.
