How Dark Money Defeated America

Richard Wolff speaks out about how the Supreme Court. They showed us today how dark money can change the rules of an economy. The right-wing political representatives can’t quite control Congress but have huge influence.

The richest people and corporations in the country, set up a tax exempt ‘charity’ and use the money to influence and lobby – while keeping their names secret. Lower taxes plus political influence, while we don’t have the right to know who is lobbying our politicians.

Professor Richard Wolff joins Thom Hartmann to ask why wealth doners are allowed to reduce their taxes, while shaping politics in secret. Richard Wolff is an Economist / Co-founder, Democracy At Work / Author of numerous books - his latest is The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself (now also available as an eBook).
