Economic Update: The Complexities of Capitalist "Success"

Friday, 07 September 2012 12:22 By Richard D Wolff, Economic Upate / Truthout | Audio Segment

Media

Updates on Romney's economic plan, French socialists' employment plan, Yale wealth growth, and wisdom of world's richest woman. Interview Max Fraad-Wolff on Apple Corp's mixed picture as capitalist "success." Response to question on financial speculation in food products.

On Economic Update with Professor Richard Wolff, Wolff and guests will discuss the current state of the economy, both locally and globally in relation to the economic crisis.

Wolff will focus on wages, jobs, taxes, and debts - and on interest rates, prices, and profits. We aim to explain why certain economic changes are happening and other changes get postponed or blocked and we will explore alternative ways to organize enterprises, markets, and government policies. Economic Update is a weekly show for people who want to understand and change not only their own financial situation but also the larger economy we all depend on.

To listen in live on Saturdays at noon, visit WBAI's Live Stream.
