County reading group to meet

MARQUETTE – The Transition Marquette County Reading Group will have a conversation about the book “Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism” by Richard Wolff at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Conference Room at Peter White Public Library, Marquette.

Wolff describes the flaws that lead to periodic crises both in private capitalism and in existing or recent socialist or communist systems, which he claims are actually a form of state capitalism.

He identifies “worker self-directed enterprises” as a system that could move civilization beyond capitalism

It would help to have at least started to read the book. For more information, call 226-3314 or email mqtchaz@earthlink.net.
