Loren Goldner is an independent writer and activist who divides his time between Seoul (South Korea) and New York City. His work is available on the Break Their Haughty Power
web site at: http://home.earthlink.net/~lrgoldner
His talk on Feb. 20 will be based on his recent (November 2008) article "The Biggest October Surprise of All: The Collapse of World Capitalism", and of course will include comments on developments since November. Please try to read the article in advance so that the presentation and discussion can move quickly to the (hopefully) controversial points raised, in particular concerning fictitious capital, the decadence of capitalism on a world scale, and the socialist program sketched in the final sections.
