Capitalism Hits Home


Exciting announcement: When Season 3 starts in September 2020, we will be welcoming Julianna Forlano as Co-Host of Capitalism Hits Home!

How does capitalism affect our personal lives? How does the economy affect life at home, relationships at work, romance and dating? Capitalism Hits Home with Dr. Harriet Fraad & Julianna Forlano explores what is happening in the economic realm and its impact on our individual and social psychology.

Capitalism Hits Home is a Democracy at Work ([email protected]) production. [email protected] produces media and live events to expose capitalism’s systemic problems and to show how democratizing our workplaces solves them. We can do better than capitalism.
