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. Beyond focusing a critical eye on the economic dimensions of everyday life - wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices, and profits - the program also explores systemic solutions to our economy's problems including alternative ways to organize production and distribution of the goods and services we all depend on.

NOTE TO SUBSCRIBERS: Despite the multiple setbacks we have experienced over the last several months in our efforts to continue producing and releasing Economic Update here on YouTube, we are very excited to announce the return of Economic Update to YouTube as of today. Over the next few days/weeks we will be releasing episodes of EU we were unable to share with our community of subscribers throughout the summer.

You can find out more about why we were unable to deliver EU to you here on YouTube by going to our website: and signing up for our newsletter that is scheduled to resume weekly distribution next week. Remember to check back here regularly as we continue to resume delivering the content and work we enjoy sharing with you and the rest of the world. Thanks as always for your attention & support,
