Album Notes
Capitalism is Eating Itself is a protest song. The name of the song derives from a quote by Karl Marx that capitalism's success as an economic system relies on continuous and increasing consumption. Eventually, it will satiate itself and can no longer grow, at which point it eats itself.

I wrote the song in frustration with the financial meltdown that occurred in 2008 and continues to ripple across the system more than 4 years later. In addition to the massive disruptions that are engulfing many countries, the severe unequal distribution of wealth leaves more than 1 billion people in the world going to bed each night with not enough to eat. A sad commentary.

So check it out. It is definitely music worth listening to.
