Working for an Economy, By the People, for the People
Professor Stanley Aronowitz

Stanley Aronowitz is the director of the Center for the Study of Culture, Technology and Work at the CUNY Graduate Center, a distinguished professor of sociology and urban education, author of 23 books , and ran for governor of New York in 2002.  He is one of the great public intellectuals of our times.  Author of 23 books, he’s known around the world for writing classics like False Promises: The Shaping of American Working Class Consciousness, 40 years ago, and The Crisis in Historical Materialism nearly 30 years ago. His more recent books such as The Jobless Future, How Class Works, Implicating Empire, The Politics of Identity: Class, Culture and Social Movements, and upcoming The Death and Rebirth of American Labor: Toward a New Labor Movement define the philosophic road to travel and offer a foundation for our thinking about the solution to our economic quagmire, our growing wealth inequality and deepening poverty.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
