Economic Update is a weekly nationally syndicated radio program produced by Democracy at Work and hosted by Richard D. Wolff. The program explores complex economic issues and empowers listeners with information to analyze their own financial situation as well as the economy at large. By focusing on the economic dimensions of everyday life - wages, jobs, taxes, debts, and profits - the program explores alternative ways to organize markets and government policies.
On this week's Economic Update, Prof. Wolff provides updates on Caterpillar tax evasion, Obamacare, slave labor for immigrants, Harvard and slavery, billionaires, Puerto Rico, and Greece. Major discussion: questions about capitalism.
