    The continuing decline of US manufacturing is a topic that warrants attention. Understanding the factors contributing to this decline and its implications for the economy is crucial. It will be interesting to hear Professor Wolff’s insights and analysis on this matter.

    In Italy rent is established by square meter space specifically, a landlord cannot name their own price without regulation even in commercial buildings or office space.
    It is true that land lords are the greatest group of profit makers with the least investment of work and effort (after stock traders), their bills for struggling families and small business are outrageous.
    This all goes back to history of using money and monopolizing wealth with the introduction of money along with the more important control and manipulation of costs, for labor / services, materials and real estate. The power to value and devalue in their favor by those who control currency.
