Dr. Richard Lachmann discusses New York City mayoral choices
Are you a New Yorker who is somewhat confused about who you should support in the upcoming mayor election?
In this interview, Professor Lachmann provides a comprehensive critical of all the major New York City mayoral candidates.
Richard Lachmann is a professor at University at Albany, SUNY. He is best known as the author of the book, "Capitalists in Spite of Themselves", which has been awarded several prizes, including the American Sociological Association Distinguished Scholarly Book Award. In this work, Lachmann shows that relations among elites rather than class struggle, or any other set of factors proposed by other historians, primarily determined the creation or non-creation of capitalism in early modern Europe. Later, he used his elite conflict theory to analyze the political crisis in the United States. (Source: Wikipedia)
