In a time of ongoing crisis, with millions in the U.S. facing unemployment or underemployment, it’s time to get radical.

His article, “What Went Wrong: An Idiosyncratic Perspective on the Economy and Economics,” is forthcoming in the December issue of RRPE. Editor David Barkin spoke with Professor Perelman, discussing the urgent matters which should be at the forefront of our thoughts, while also discovering reasons to take heart and take action.
