Jack Rasmus is a Professor of Economics at St Marys College and Santa Clara University, both in California.

He has been a business economist, market analyst and vice-president of the National Writers Union.


'Everybody else talked of the Lehman crisis as a blip, but Rasmus got it right: his concept of 'epic recession' describes what happened, in America and in the Western world' -- Paul Mason, BBC Newsnight Economics Editor, author of Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed and Live Working or Die Fighting: How the Working Class Went Global
'Rasmus describes in detail how Obama was the most conservative and business-oriented of the Democratic candidates in 2008, and how his first-term economic policies reflected that orientation' -- Chuck Mack, International Vice-President, International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union
'Gives new meaning to common sense economics. While working people reel in the downward spiralling economy, Rasmus analyses how we got where we are and makes recommendations for sustained economic growth and recovery' -- Donna DeWitt, President, South Carolina AFL-CIO
'A revealing expose' -- Nancy Wohlforth, Co-Covenor, US Labor Against War
