Economic Update: Professional Athletes Lead The Way

On this week's show, Prof. Wolff presents updates on why the FED monetary policy dominates the US; fatal flaws of eviction moratorium; luxury, fashion centers shift to China despite US anti-China policies; and the unnecessary crisis of US restaurants.

In the second half of the show, Wolff interviews sports journalist Dave Zirin on historic strikes of US professional athletes. Dave Zirin is the sports editor at The Nation Magazine, author of ten books on the politics of sports, and host of the Edge of Sports Podcast. Follow him on twitter: @edgeofsports.

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.
