Everyone can learn from Ask Prof Wolff

When you get the right teacher, it is an absolute pleasure to ask them a question and learn from their response. Prof Wolff’s digital classroom is far too large for him to be able to answer everyone, but we have a way for him to answer questions that we all can benefit from.

Our Ask Prof Wolff series features short 5 - 10 minute videos in which Prof Wolff answers audience questions on a wide variety of topics. In 2020, you asked questions about socialist theory and practice, timely news events, how worker co-ops work, and more. Prof Wolff responded with an impressive 85 video responses. We are so grateful to him for regularly spending his precious and highly sought-after time to answer these questions from his digital classroom.

We wanted to share with you the top 5 most popular Ask Prof Wolff videos from last year:

  1. AskProfWolff: The World Economic Forum's "Great Reset" Isn't One
  2. AskProfWolff: Socialism in Venezuela
  3. AskProfWolff: COVID-19 and the Stock Market

    The message that Marx brought to humanity has not ceased flowing through the veins of working men and women; Richard Wolff has taken up and forcefully continuing to help deliver the massage for the benefit of millions.
