Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff began on a single Pacifica station in March 2011. Today, it is played on 120+ radio stations nationwide and available for video streaming online.

Prof. Wolff’s takes complex economic issues and makes them understandable, empowering listeners with information to analyze not only their own financial situation, but the economy at large. By focusing on the economic dimensions of everyday life - wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices, and profits - the program explores alternative ways to organize markets, and government policies.

Economic Update is a Democracy at Work (d@w) production. d@w produces media and live events that aim to expose capitalism’s systemic problems and to show how democratizing our workplaces solves them. We can do better than capitalism.
