This week on Economic Update, Professor Wolff delivers updates on the workers' strikes at the University of California, the debate over privatized fire departments, how and why big money is buying academia, unionization of fast-food workers, the link between capitalism driven loneliness and scapegoating, Hillary Clinton IS a pro-capitalist/anti-socialist and why the VW CEO is not the problem, the system is.
The second half of the show features an interview with Dr. Harriet Fraad on capitalism's destruction of the family and "family values."
Harriet Fraad is a mental health counselor and hypnotherapist in practice in New York City. She is a founding member of the feminist movement and the journal Rethinking Marxism. For 40 years, she has been a radical committed to transforming US personal and political life. Harriet specializes in speaking and writing about topics in which psychology and economics overlap, as these topics remain loaded with taboos, confusions, ignorance, and fear preventing us from asking big questions and daring to discuss big answers. By analyzing issues where psychology and economics collide, we can better analyze our society and our individuality as well.
