Richard Wolff: The Economy is In Trouble

Our country is in trouble and it's about a fundamental problem we have as a nation — Inequality. A consumer economy simply can't function when the consumers are too poor to consume and the wealthy refuse.

Richard Wolff join Thom Hartmann to discuss spenders and savers, be they rich or poor. And it all comes down to taxation and the rich. Surprised?

Professor 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)
