Barbara Ehrenreich: Is Capitalism Dead?

Nation contributor Barbara Ehrenreich discusses the changing definition of socialism and its new relevance to the current economic meltdown.


Barbara Ehrenreich joined Joseph Stiglitz, Bill Fletcher, Jr. and Jeff Madrick in the Meltdown Forum, hosted by The Nation magazine and The Nation Institute March 6, to discuss the economic crisis and what must be done to move forward. During her opening remarks, Ehrenreich advised moving beyond the religion of market fundamentalism that places the invisible hand as a deity to rethinking production and our way of life. Please visit the Meltdown site to see more videos and listen to a podcast of the entire event.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
