Dr. James K. Galbraith at CEP Convention 2010
Economist Dr. James K. Galbraith spoke at the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers' 9th convention last month, where he brought delegates a message not often heard from economists – that there is a progressive response to the economic crisis.



Galbraith – the son of famed Canadian economist John Kenneth Galbraith – regaled delegates with his analysis of the roots of the economic recession that has destroyed jobs, families and communities. He said the crisis wasn’t an economic crisis but a fraud perpetrated on innocent victims.
