“The Economics of a New Year”
Co-sponsored by Democracy at Work, Left Forum, and Judson Memorial Church.
These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month. Then Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For this February 4, 2015, these will include:
1. Causes and consequences of the oil price collapse: can it produce another crash?
2. Greece: if Jan. 25 election brings Syriza victory, what happens to Europe?
3. The economics of Cuba, 1959-2014: embargo, survival, new industries, and the turn toward worker cooperatives
