Economic Update: US Midterm Elections

 
 
Prof. Wolff presents updates on how China hits back economically; capitalism surviving in Italy through explosive debt creation; why lotteries have heavy economic costs; and how Grinnell College undergraduate workers successfully organized. 

In the second half of the show, Prof. Wolff interviews Prof. David Harvey on a Marxist view of the US midterm elections: causes and consequences.


David Harvey teaches at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He has written extensively on the significance of Marx's Capital for understanding contemporary capitalism. His most recent book is Marx, Capital and the Madness of Economic Reason.

David Harvey hosts a new podcast David Harvey’s Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, a bimonthly podcast that looks at capitalism through a Marxist lens. You can find David Harvey's Anti-Capitalism Chronicles on iTunes, GooglePlay and at democracyatwork.info/acc.
