Capitalism is, at last, killing itself off.
A conversation with activist and author Jerry Mander about his latest book The Capitalism Crisis: Fatal Flaws of an Obsolete System.
In the 1960s, Mander was president of a major San Francisco advertising company before turning his talents to environmental campaigns. Mander worked with the noted environmentalist, David Brower, managing the Sierra Club's advertising campaigns to prevent the construction of dams in the Grand Canyon, to establish Redwood National Park, and to stop the U.S. Supersonic Transport (SST) project. In 1971 he founded the first non-profit advertising agency in the United States, Public Interest Communications.
