Sickness, stress, sadness, lock-downs, loss of companionship, loss of income, unsafe workplaces, unsafe shopping places, unsafe schools, fear of losing your job, fear of your fellow citizen, fear of your future…
The COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying economic decline are revealing and widening the cracks of our capitalist system more than ever before. These cracks affect us directly, our daily lives, and our relationships. Capitalism really does hit you at home.
“Bless you. Dr. Fraad. Your compassion is exemplary. As an ex-American
living in Australia (since 1981), I am fortunate and tend to blame Americans for
"getting the government they deserve." Your video has forced me to find more understanding
for America as it truly exists today. Thank you. Your contribution matters.” - Nanci N.
Our show Capitalism Hits Home with Dr. Harriet Fraad tackles these issues head on. With new episodes released every other Thursday as a podcast and on our YouTube channel, working psychologist Dr. Fraad explores what is happening in the economic realm and its impact on our individual and social psychology.
“Brilliant and very necessary commentary in this new
world of horror that capitalism has brought upon us.
Thank you for speaking the truth, Dr. Fraad.” - Alan D.
The latest episode, released today, is the second piece of a segment titled COVID Disaster and US Family Life in Trump Capitalism We hope it, along with past and future episodes, helps to develop our understanding of the impacts of our capitalist system on us all, and in particular how this pandemic is further marginalizing the already vulnerable: women, children and minorities.
