From Welfare State to Real Estate: Regime Change in New York City, 1974 to the Present
Prominent labour activist Kim Moody examines the ever growing reach of New York's developmental bulldozer. Arguing that the city's business elite has tilted the political structure towards an agenda that puts real estate development before human need, Moody offers the first historical narrative of the key turning points of this process. The book is a serious warning to working class people everywhere. Moody has spent over 30 years in the field, co-founding union newspaper Labor Notes in 1979 and teaching labour studies and politics at universities in the US and UK.
