On this week's show, Prof. Wolff explores what a socialist response to COVID-19 would have looked like. The US has 5% of the world's population but 30% of the world's Covid-19 deaths.
US capitalism did poorly against the virus.
Today's program explores how socialism could and would prepare for and respond to Covid-19 differently.
Economic Update includes both the logic of socialism's different policies and examples of socialist-influenced policies in other countries.
Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff takes complex economic issues and makes them understandable, empowering listeners with information to analyze not only their financial situation but the economy at large.
By focusing on the economic dimensions of everyday life - wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices, and profits - the program explores alternative ways to organize markets and government policies.
