Hi Richard,

I contacted Rick Wolff, but don't have an answer yet (I was at one of his classes at the Brecht too). Due to the rush in organizing this, I couldn't contact with all the names I thought (Harvey is also one of those, of course). We also had many doubts on the specific format we wanted to give to this forum, and there is a heavy time constriction (only 2 hours), so we did what we could. Feel free to contact them anyway. Thanks!

See you tomorrow!

I was just going to offer suggestions about ways to contact Rick
Wolfe.  Don't know if he would remember me, though I remember him from
a class at the Brecht Forum a few years ago.  Also have seen him
giving lots of talks on many videos (a favorite over at Real News).
If he has the time open, he would probably want to do this, as this
guy apparently likes to talk. :)

Is Paul Mattick, Jr. still around in this town?  He's done some talks
for a relatively small group here and did such great interviews fairly
recently at the Brooklyn Rail.  That's someone I would like to see at
an economic forum. Also, if Loren Goldner were around...   And maybe
David Harvey (but he is a bit of an academic big shot, isn't he?).
Well, these are just names occurring to me - in the spirit of what
Matthew was doing.  I guess this is all unlikely for something being
organized just tonight.

Oh, and, hmm, though I could have some debates with him sometimes, I
was wondering if anyone looked for Doug Henwood.
