Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff  is a weekly nationally syndicated 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 not only their own financial situation but the economy at large.

March 29, 2015 In this episode of Economic Update we take a look at the Trans-Pacific Partnership secrets, the Heinz-Kraft merger, the overly costly and underperforming US medical care system, the fines for Graco selling faulty child car-seats, China's real-estate bubble and the estate tax repeal being pushed by Republican House Representatives. We will also hear responses to listeners on property: private versus public and discuss how system change has happened in the past and and how it can and should happen within capitalism today.
