This week’s show looks at the economy from a couple of different angles. The first is the redistribution of wealth from poorer to richer and the second is the effect recent events in the Middle East have had on oil and gas prices. Our guests are Richard Wolff and Chris Markowski
Richard D. Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he taught economics from 1973 to 2008. He is currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University, New York City. He also teaches classes regularly at the Brecht Forum in Manhattan. He recently wrote and article titled “How the rich soaked the rest of us – The astonishing story of the last few decades is a massive redistribution of wealth, as the rich have shifted the tax burden.”
It is well worth the read.
