    The 1930s Great Depression: Could it happen again?

    The 1930s Great Depression: Could it happen again?

    The Great Depression was the most severe crisis of the capitalist system in the 20th century. In the years following the Wall Street Crash, industrial production in the West collapsed, and world trade dried up.

    The impact of the depression on the working class and poor was severe. Millions across the world faced unemployment, destitution, and hunger.

    After the initial shock of the crisis passed, workers became increasingly radicalised around the world. The USA saw a wave of industrial militancy, which transformed the trade unions. A wave of strikes, revolutions, and counter-revolutions swept Europe.

    In this session, James Kilby discusses the causes of the Great Depression, its impact on the class struggle, and explores whether we will see another great depression, or one even greater.

    Solidarity with the struggle in Peru!

    In response to the coup in Peru against President Castillo, and the heavy repression of the mass movement by the Boluarte regime, the Marxist Student Federation held a joint meeting to discuss these turbulent events, and explain why only a revolutionary struggle against capitalism can secure the interests of the Peruvian workers and peasants.

    Is this the end of globalisation?

    After decades of proudly poclaiming the era of globalisation, today we see trade wars instead of free trade, and misery instead of prosperity. In this talk, Niklas Albin Svensson discusses the reasons behind the collapse of free trade, what it would mean for the world economy and what attitude we should take towards it.

    ⚠️ This episode is a cross post from International Marxist Radio. To stay up to date with future episodes, head to https://www.socialist.net/imt-radio-new-podcast-coming-soon.htm ⚠️

    The International Marxist Tendency (IMT) is pleased to announce the launch of its new podcast, International Marxist Radio (IMR). The first episode of this new series features presenter Joe Attard speaking to In Defence of Marxism (IDOM) editor-in-chief Alan Woods.

    They discuss perspectives for the world situation going into 2023: will there be a return to normality for capitalism, or will the class contradictions continue to sharpen, as the bosses’ system lurches from crisis to crisis? Will there be a global recession? Where is the war in Ukraine heading?

    Alan delves into the history of capitalism to help explain these processes going on today – and why a socialist revolution is the only way forward for humanity.

Hot to Trotsky

These podcasts are informative and a great listen for when you’re at work. What could be better, while making the fat capitalist bosses rich, than injecting your audio waves with a healthy dose of revolutionary theory?

MMT Straw Man :((

Listened to the Marxism, Keynesianism and MMT episode - spent a lot of time saying “I’m not going to construct a straw man of MMT” before proceeding to construct a straw man of MMT. Disappointing, but not surprising unfortunately.
