A recording of a historic address given by Noam Chomsky, one of the world’s leading intellectuals, this powerful footage offers an analysis of current world events, including the economic crisis and its structural roots, U.S. foreign policy under the Obama administration, and the social and economic interest driving both foreign and domestic policy. This debate also speaks to the tradition of worker self-management as a concrete alternative to the business-as-usual approach that corporations and the government are currently employing. A timely, provocative analysis, this talk presents the most current philosophies of Chomsky, concluding with a one-on-one interview that gives additional insight into his worldview and global affairs.
