Economic Update: Virginia Elects a Socialist

On this week's show, Prof. Wolff presents updates on political economy of Trump/GOP attacks on China and their long term costs; parallel analysis of attacks on immigrants;  Michelle Alexander on who today is “The Resistance;” and record funds pouring into US midterm elections. Interview with Lee Carter, a socialist elected to Virginia House of Delegates on why and how he won.

Delegate Lee Carter serves Virginia’s 50th House of Delegate district, which includes the City of Manassas and western Prince William County. He was inspired to run after being hurt on the job and subsequently failed by Virginia’s worker compensation system. Delegates Carter won in 2017 on a platform of expanding worker protections and ending corruption of the General Assembly by the hands of large corporations.  Follow Lee Carter on Twitter: @carterforva
