Erik Olin Wright passes away (New York Times article):
Erik Olin Wright, a Marxist sociologist who helped bring to light the complexities of social and economic classes and explored alternatives to capitalism, including a universal basic income, died on Jan. 23 in Milwaukee. He was 71.
One of his earliest books, “Class, Crisis, and the State” was a game-changer for me.
