    I really dont know what to say, every day one new decision and move is being done by the new leader. Even i am up to date on this through http://www.essay-to-go.net/ blogs news. I hope this doesn’t affect common man’s life.

    great talk! Here in the UK we have poiticians in la la land that are so out of touch that Parliament is now nothing more than a museum where tourists visit the gallery to watch the clowns pretending that democracy exists.

    Unfortunately the stupidity and austerity ideology of these ‘clowns’ is causing the rise of fascism which is nascent in the UK and Europe – more sleepwalking!

    +Willa Rothman I think you may be referring to a talk called Crisis and Openings, which is on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9Whccunka4. I hope that is the one you are looking for. :)

    Does anyone know how I can find the talk of Richard Wolff’s where he explains American Exceptionalism in terms of why America was able to have a capitalist system where wages rose with productivity until 1970’s? I’m looking for a particular lecture where he’s at a chalkboard drawing a graph of this. I thought I bookmarked it, but I didn’t and now I can’t find it. Thanks so much!

    Thank you for your great show. I’d like to suggest a British documentary that helped me understand some of the basics of the global monetary system as it is manifested today. “97% Owned – Economic Truth documentary – Queuepolitely cut” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcGh1Dex4Yo&t=2760s
