Economic Update: Labor Vs. Capitalism
This week on Economic Update, Prof. Wolff gets into the Left victory in Mexico's election, SCOTUS's Janus decision, Trump’s Foxconn fakery in Wisconsin, the GOP’s forced labor for Medicaid beneficiaries and the scapegoating of immigrants exposed.
In the second half of the show, Prof. Wolff interviews Dr. Harriet Fraad on the personal, psychological effects of a dying US empire.
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.
