Description Transcript (34 pages) of interview by Rob DeBirk with Hans Ehrbar on June 27, 2008
Abstract Ehrbar is from Munich, Germany, and has a Ph.D in both mathematics and economics. He is self-proclaimed socialist and Marxist. He works for the University of Utah and teaches classes in economics, Marxism, and environmentalism. He thinks that our society wouldn't be able to just become socialist, so his argument is to reform capitalism to create a social demographic capitalism, but he's not sure if it's possible. He believes that "every class we are teaching should be an environmental class" and that's not happening. We're not being extreme enough in our efforts and that we need an organized movement, from the people, government is too involved. Utah Environmentalist Oral History Project. Interviewer: Rob DeBirk
