Brecht Forum – Kim Moody – From Welfare State to Real Estate

Topic(s): Lecture | No Comments

Date/Time: 17/04/2007 12:00 am


Labor Notes co-founder Kim Moody takes aim at the politics of New York City. In his new book From Welfare State to Real Estate, he traces the path from the fiscal crisis of the 1970s to today’s real estate development frenzy. Moody
documents how the city’s business elite tilted the scales against the
interests of New York’s working people, producing a 21st century
Gilded City, with the nation’s first billionaire mayor.
