Will the Feds Trigger A Full-Blown Recession?

Could the Feds "accidentally" trigger a recession just in time for the 2022 election? Richard Wolff warns that our economy is in "serious trouble."

Biden reconfirmed Trump appointee Jerome Powell as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Some are speculating that Jerome Powell is planning to trigger a recession to tank the economy so the Democratic Party and President Biden take the blame.

Richard Wolff is an economist, co-founder of Democracy at work and the author of numerous books. His latest is "The Sickness is The System: Why Capitalism Fails to Save Us From Pandemics and Itself."
