    Outstanding coverage of monthly economic issues. I particularly enjoy the connection between Clinton’s " saving capitalism " comment and VW cheating scandal as well as the TPP. The most important comment however, the need for us to understand our history of labor empowerment in order to buld opposition movements against the undemocratic capital partnerships.

    I really enjoyed the obvious facts put forth by Richard Wolff and Chris Hedges, both of whom I have listened to many times before now. Unfortunately Chris hedges in this speech was recorded in a brick walled room and the acoustics were atrocious. Surely the audio technology of today should be considered important so as to match the superb content of the speeches.
