US and China: 1 Global Economy, 2 Giants - Tariffs, Competition, Deals: What’s Coming
with Richard D. Wolff
Co-sponsored by Democracy at Work, Left Forum & Judson Memorial Church
These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month, then Prof. Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For March 2019, these issues will include:
1. The record US gov’t budget deficit in 2018: causes and effects
2. The record US trade deficit in 2018: causes and effects
3. Unions reviving? Strikes, organizing and the looming strategic decision they face about socialism in the US
Our goal: To develop all participants’ understanding and ability to explain current economic events and trends to others. We open the floor to questions and comments when time permits.
