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.

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).
