This week on Economic Update, Professor Wolff delivers updates on the decline of U.S. cities and the potential of “private cities”, the ever-growing freelancers’ economy, why the U.S. Supreme Court decided to legalize sports betting now, Fiat-Chrysler & Porsche added to the emissions cheating scandal, the new federal jobs guarantee and a Catholic University attacks the concept of tenure. 

The second half of the show features an Interview with Chris Hedges on the unsustainable US system.
