Economic Update: Working Class Radicalism

On this week's show, Prof. Wolff presents updates on why the US record on Covid-19 is so much worse than most others'; corporation buys Trump; US billionaires got much richer during pandemic, while 42 million workers lost their jobs; sharp rise to 66,433 homeless in LA.

The second part of the show features an interview with creative activist and journalist, Eleanor Goldfield on her new film Hard Road of Hope on working-class radicalism.

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.
