American Style Capitalism – Then and Now

American capitalism has undergone much change from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century until the present day 21st century or “information age” as some would say. Although the general dynamic of a ruling class that lives like parasites on the backs of the working class has not changed, the face and methods of capitalism has.

The following graphics tell the story.

Roy Zimmerman’s new show “Funny Songs and Bad Advice” contains plenty of both. In thirteen albums over twenty years, Roy Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. Zimmerman’s YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views. He’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
