This week on Economic Update, Professor Richard D. Wolff provides updates on doctors in the U.S. getting paid for prescribing fentanyl, why deficits are a non-issue, how tobacco companies perpetuate the cigarette problem, the big corporations battling over net neutrality, a German city denying food to starving non-German citizens, Trump vs Stormy Daniels and the pay discrimination against women.
