with Richard D. Wolff 
Co-sponsored by Democracy at Work,
Left Forum & Judson Memorial Church
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.

    This is great. I would like to know specifically how to begin. I am a member of a trade union and am tired of getting less and less with every new contract. I would like the union members to have our own co-op. Aside from the changes to the contract, like Hande Togrul commented above, I also do not know how to move this forward.

    I think co-op is a great idea

    I love Prof Wolff!
    The change from a slave economy (USA) and feudal economy (ex. France, Russia, etc) ended in War!! Can the US transform without violence?

    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”.

    Just one question: Where does money profit rich? If we all worked for a singl company in America, where the company will be profitable? In order to have more income than expenses, if we, the workers of its cost and also the customers who give income.
