Speaking Event: George Caffentzis and Strike Debt Bay Area
Join George Caffentzis and Strike Debt Bay Area for a discussion about radical and practical responses to debt and capitalism.
George Caffentzis is contributor to the newly released The Debt Resisters' Operations Manual and author of the recent In Letters of Blood and Fire: Work, Machines, and the Crisis of Capitalism.
For debtors everywhere who want to understand how the system really works, this handbook provides practical tools for fighting debt in its most exploitative forms.
Over the last 30 years as wages have stagnated across the country, average household debt has more than doubled. Increasingly, people are forced to take on debt to meet their needs; from housing to education and medical care. The results—wrecked lives, devastated communities, and an increasing reliance on credit to maintain basic living standards—reveal an economic system that enriches the few at the expense of the many.
Detailed strategies, resources, and insider tips for dealing with some of the most common kinds of debt are covered in this manual, including credit card debt, medical debt, student debt, and housing debt.
