Confronting the Jobs Crisis
We argue that increasing effective demand via traditional Keynesian stimuli is inadequate to resolve the job crisis in the U.S. Rather, we need a radical restructuring of the job market that necessitates a national industrial policy. We claim that to achieve such a restructuring we need a mass social movement that goes beyond standard legislative lobbying. We conclude with two sets of questions. The first set asks about the creation of new social movements, the second about leadership coming from forces within the current social movements Copyright Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2012
