Leave a comment

Prof. Richard Walker of the Geography Department at UC-Berkeley (and member of the CSA Steering Committee), has a new article in the New Left Review (#66, Nov.-Dec. 2010) about the crisis in California. In it he discusses how the mortgage meltdown and the housing crash are both symptomatic of problems created by a generation of neo-liberal policies and causes of further manifestations of those problems.
