Award-winning author and journalist Naomi Klein will talk to Salt Lake Community College students Nov. 10 at the South City Campus.
SLCC invited Klein to speak as part of the Tanner Forum on Social Ethics. She is expected to discuss the subject of her latest book “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.”
According to Klein, economic policy is linked to the destabilized environment through neoliberal capitalism. The privatization of public sectors and deregulation of the market is to designed create profits and nothing else; a system the perpetuates greed.
But Klein is not a pessimist; she sees this crisis as an opportunity for massive reform.
The presentation starts at 7 p.m. in the Grand Theatre and will be followed by a Q&A session and book signing. The event is free and open to the public.
“This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate” is available in the campus bookstore now.
