This week on Economic Update, Professor Wolff delivers updates on France's successful mass uprisings (Yellow Vests in 2019; mass union strikes in 2020) that forced the French government to back down on changes workers opposed, how endless wars impose huge debts, and how the Catholic Church uses U.S. bankruptcy law to prevent the church's assets from being used to compensate victims of sexual assault.
The second half of this week’s episode features an interview with journalist Bob Hennelly on military spending and debts in the US economy.
