Why Trickle-Up Economics Won’t Work: The “Crisis of Distribution” Myth and its Political Implications
A talk by Andrew Kliman, author of The Failure of Capitalist Production: Underlying Causes of the Great Recession
Wednesday 9/12, 7-9pm
500 8th Avenue, bet. 35th and 36th Streets, Manhattan, at Pearl Studios, Room 401.
Rising inequality. Stagnant pay for workers. The bifurcation of the U.S. into “the 99%” and the “1%.” These notions greatly influenced much of the Occupy movrment and they continue to influence liberal and left politics. They’ve even fueled talk, by Naomi Klein and others, that the U.S. is not in an economic crisis, and that we have a crisis of distribution instead!
Andrew Kliman has spent countless hours examining the facts. He will share some of what he has learned, and will also suggest that the myth that we have a distribution crisis is rooted in the belief that “there is no alternative” to capitalism.

BATTLE GROUND by Paul Chisholm
September 8– 28, 2012
at ESPAI D’ART WAKA, Palma, Mallorca, Spain
Paul Chisholm’s solo show Battleground, features an array of work that focus on the duplicities of meaning embedded within the codes and gestures that characterize daily life and refers to ideas of the social versus the individual. The artist frequently makes reference to the military conflict currently taking place throughout the Middle East and inserts accents of popular culture, from the First World, in order to expose the vast contrast that exists between the lived realities of those who fight to survive versus those who live a supposedly comfortable life.
Waka is open Monday to Friday 5-8pm and by appointment. A private reception will be held on Friday September 7 at 7.30pm. More information can be found at www.paulchisholm.com and at www.wakanegra.org
