Leading up to the Socialism Summit in Philadelphia on Nov. 18, a “Conversation on the Capitalist Economic Crisis” was held at the Arch Street Methodist Church near Occupy Philly. The event featured Workers World Party Secretariat member Fred Goldstein, author of “Low-Wage Capitalism,” and Dr. Anthony Monteiro, lecturer in African-American Studies at Temple University. Monteiro is known for his work on W.E.B. Du Bois.

Goldstein and Monteiro conducted a wide-ranging conversation, covering everything from the new period of working-class struggle introduced by the Occupy movement to the question of what is needed to address the systemic problems of capitalism — left Keynesianism or revolution. The event was hosted by the Philadelphia Economic Advancement CollectivE (PEACE) and Workers World Party. PEACE organizer Jamila Wilson facilitated the discussion.
