A conversation about capitalism with two brilliant minds, Cornel West and Prof. Wolff, together in a rare joint appearance.
Updates on Coke vs Pepsi war, price gouging on cancer drugs, Corwyn good for UK Labor Party, and new Pope's strong anti-capitalist speeches. We respond to listeners' questions on guaranteed basic income and on why public employees are not an economic negative. Major attention is given to supporting countries that refuse to pay certain govt debts and especially to Greece in a review of is dramatic recent struggles.
Prof. Wolff talk about Greece and explains why the furor over a secret contingency plan to leave the Euro and go back to a Greek currency is misplaced and inappropriate on CPRmetro radio.
“Winners and Losers in Today's Shifting Capitalism”
Today's program focuses on two alternatives to capitalism. The first is an alternative to how capitalism organizes enterprises in terms of their internal workings and relationships. We examine workers self-directed enterprises: how they work and how they compare to capitalist enterprises. In the program's second half we look at an alternative to how capitalism organizes the economy as a whole: the socialist tradition that has evolved multiple different forms in the world today.
Prof. Wolff talks to Community Public Radio's Don DeBar about Greece and the European Union.
Prof. Wolff joins GRITtv's Laura Flanders to talk about Sanders and Socialism. Is socialism still an American taboo?
Prof. Wolff talks to KPFA's Letters and Politics Mitch Jesserich about Greece's debt deal.
