Clayton Morgareidge offers a commentary on Why Capitalism Has Run its Course, drawing on work by John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff in Monthly Review.

Left and the Law: Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker discuss the ongoing struggle of prisoners at Pelican Bay State Prison in California, the recent federal ruling that granted inmates at Pelican Bay class action status in their legal fight to establish solitary confinement as inhumane, and the ongoing work around the issue of mass incarceration.

Joe Clement talks with Karen Gibson of PSU's Urban Studies program about gentrification, how to find out more about it, and how to resist.
