About Economy & Psychology Podcast

These podcasts are produced by Dr. Richard Wolff and Dr. Harriet Fraad, professionals with extensive experience working in their respective fields as a psychotherapist and an economist. Here they combine what they have learned to explore how the twin crises of the US economy and our psychology interact today. Isolation, anxiety, loneliness, and depression are psychological issues that profoundly impact work, consumption, and debt.

Likewise, unemployment, income inequality, and exploitation shape our emotional and intimate lives. The interaction of economy and psychology helps to determine our society and our individuality as well. Yet these topics remain loaded with taboos, confusions, ignorance, and fear preventing us from asking big questions and daring to discuss big answers. Getting past these limits to explore economics, psychology, and their mutual influence is our goal and purpose.

Drs. Fraad and Wolff have been married since 1965 and have two adult children.
