Special thanks to this month's sponsors: viewers from the /leftypol/ online community. Sponsor an episode today!
These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month, then Prof. Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For January, these issues will include: 
1.  The economics of Trump blocking jobs moving to Mexico;
2.  how Trump’s “infrastructure” plans will rip off the public; and
3.  the “tax cuts are job creators” scam.
Our goal: To develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others. We open the floor to questions and comments when time permits.

    The 1% party (democrats + republicans) subsidize the corporations that rape the poor and working class around the world. “New estimates show that just eight men own the same wealth as the poorest half of the world. As growth benefits the richest, the rest of society – especially the poorest – suffers…”

    Great monthly update. The prof. was on his A-game. And that’s no, as Adam Smith used to say, “bullshit”.
