Goldstein to discuss ‘Capitalism at a Dead End’

Fred Goldstein, author of “Capitalism at a Dead End: Job Destruction, Overproduction and Economic Crisis in the High-Tech Era,” will be speaking and signing copies of the book on Feb. 16, beginning at 2 p.m. at Inquiring Minds Bookstore, 65 Partition St., Saugerties, N.Y.

The book explains that the economic crisis that began in August 2007 marked a turning point in the history of capitalism, which cannot return to the normal capitalist boom-and-bust cycle. It has been well reviewed on the left. The recent publication of a Spanish edition has created a stir among political activists throughout Latin America.
