    Understanding the Chinese Model – State Capitalism or Market-Maoism?

    As China experiments with its unique form of indigenous capitalism, it managed to pull 800 million people out of poverty in a record time while it maintained a strong economy despite the dire predictions of Western pundits. At the same time many of its counterparts in the West are facing very economically challenging times. In this interactive seminar Michael Bucher asks what’s driving China’s success story and what lessons the rest of the world can learn from one of the greatest social experiments of the century.

    Capitalism in Peril - Democratic Socialism to the Rescue?

    Since its emergence in the late 1700s, Capitalism has been the most successful economic system that the world has ever seen. However, the colorful success stories cannot hide the grim realities of extreme income inequality, cyclical instability, social destitution and what has been termed by some as the ecological “death spiral”. In this interactive seminar, Ted Auerbach presents the democratic socialist alternative and, discusses its potential for recapturing the lost genius of American prosperity.

    Mr. Auerbach is a New York based retired school teacher. He has been a peace and social justice activist for over 50 years.
