Asked by the Memphis Metropulse to discuss who carries on the same kind of work as he does, Noam Chomsky stated, “There are a great many people who could be doing these things, and who simply are not invited because they’re unknown, people doing extremely good work…Just today I’ve happened to read extremely good articles on these topics [ corporate globalization and deindustrialization] by Roger Bybee.”

Roger’s articles have appeared in numerous anthologies, including It Started in Wisconsin, The Economic Crisis Reader, Real World Labor (2009/2011),The World Economy: Current Controversies, and Opposing Viewpoints: Urban Agriculture. His e-mail address is winterbybee@gmail.com.
