Economic Update: Precarious Work = Capitalism's Inefficiency


Direct Download

This week's updates include the economics of refugees, Ford buys French political wife, LAs homeless, Labor Day history, Seattle Teachers strike and why Japan's jobs are ever more precarious. Prof Wolff responds to listeners on why rising wages need NOT mean rising prices. Interview with Dr. Harriet Fraad, mental health counselor, on the psychological pains, personal suffering, and huge social costs of imposing uncertainty and precarity on job security, hours and days of work, benefits, and wages.

    The Economic Update on RD Wolff website does not play correctly on my iPad. It begins but 5 minutes into the program it loops back to the beginning again. Apple products do not have Flash, which the website says you need, so that may be the problem. Also the program was NOT broadcast on KPFK (Los Angeles) this past Sunday at the scheduled time so no way I can hear the Economic update. Would you consider using soundcloud or something I could ear the entire program on. It use to play well on Democracy@work prior to the new website…could you bring it back there?
