Do you envision a movement growing around your message like the Nader Raiders?

If I won the lottery or was otherwise in a position to do so, I would fund and promote the delivery of your message to an ever greater audience. This reverie of mine makes me think of Ralph Nader and his rallies which "culminated" at Madison Square Gardens. I believe that as the blatantly pro-1% policies of the current administration begin to affect more and more people in a negative way, your audience will grow dramatically. Be ready.

If I won the lottery, I would do the same with my winnings. Even without a lottery win or an angel (at least so far) we have grown incredibly over the last 5 years. I did my 1-hour radio show, "Economic Update," that was broadcast on one station (WBAI, 99.5 FM, New York City) when we began in March 2011. Today the program is broadcast on 75 radio stations across the US plus two TV stations. When I began my public monthly economic lecture in New York City 7 years ago, we had 20-25 attendees; now, the monthly talks occur in the historic Judson Memorial Church on Washington Square and draw 150 are videotaped and viewed on You Tube by over 100,000 each month. The mass interest in and response to what we are saying and advocating is a proven reality. With more funds, our social impact could and would be immense. So I think we are ready. And thanks for your vote of confidence as well.

    If you discovered Prof Wolff on Pacifica Radio as did I; Ralph Nader has a radio hour on KPFK saturday mornings. In spite of fellow Pacifica programmer ian master’s dismissal
    Nader is still relevant with a recent book on how people can do exactly what you dream of.
    It certainly doesn’t take that obscene tax on poor people we once prosecuted mafiosi for running numbers rackets. The Sanders’ campaign showed how many people with small donations can match the olgarchs. Instead of waiting for Proff Wolff to make news, and if you hate what is; let’s you and me go out and make our own.
