Economic Update: "The Public's Health and Economics"

Updates on extremes in Spain's crisis, Paul Ryan as VP candidate, US Justice Dept drops case against Goldman-Sachs, college costs crisis, and fast-rising food prices. Interview with Prof. Carles Muntaner on how deeply social and economic conditions shape health and on the implications of that shaping. Question answered on requiring workers in Workers Self-Directed Enterprises to all participate in directing enterprises.

On Economic Update with Professor Richard Wolff, Wolff and guests will discuss the current state of the economy, both locally and globally in relation to the economic crisis.

Wolff will focus on wages, jobs, taxes, and debts - and on interest rates, prices, and profits. We aim to explain why certain economic changes are happening and other changes get postponed or blocked and we will explore alternative ways to organize enterprises, markets, and government policies. Economic Update is a weekly show for people who want to understand and change not only their own financial situation but also the larger economy we all depend on.
