[S9 E19]

This week on Economic Update, Professor Wolff delivers updates on how 60 mega corporations paid no 2018 Federal taxes, why GM's CEO gets $29.1 million while GM fires thousands and wrecks communities, how the Notre Dame tragedy exposes French inequality as billionaires suddenly find money for a church, not for the people and the rising wave of U.S. worker strikes reflect militance and unity. 

In the second half of the show, Professor Wolff interviews Rebecca Lurie, the Director of the Community and Worker Ownership Project at CUNY.
