Here is the link to my blog post about the relevance of the song, "Sixteen Tons" to exploited workers, both in the past, and in today's world: http://thesuspicionist.blogspot.com/2017/05/is-this-classic-song-real-national.html
Official response from Richard Wolff submitted
First of all, I am flattered by your inclusion of my explanation of the theory of surplus to Abby Martin in your fine work on Merle Travis's "Sixteen Toms." Second, it might interest you to know that I was enormously taken by the Tennessee Ernie Ford rendition that I heard on the radio as a teenager years ago. I was not yet politically interested so perhaps that son played a role in my own development.
Do you like this suggestion?
