Steve Fraser – How History Helps Us Envision Alternatives to Capitalism

Age of AcquiencesHistorian Steve Fraser compares our time to an era when harsh inequality gave rise to popular movements that threatened the American establishment, an era when the labor movement marched armed workers’ militias through the streets, and asks – why isn’t that happening today today? That book is The Age of Acquiescence: The Life and Death of American Resistance to Organized Wealth and Power. He presented that book in a speech at Hunter College’s Roosevelt House on July 21st.

Steve Fraser, historian and author of books about Wall Street, the New Deal, and the history of the labor movement; also the founder of The American Empire project.
