Richard Wolff joins The Hill's Rising with Krystal Ball & Saagar Enjeti to analyze the latest relief package. "What really irks me is the comments from some of the Democratic leaders. The other day a statement from Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel prize winning economist who should know better, this notion that it is 'transformative,' that it's going to eradicate poverty, this is nutty. This is not gonna do that... You're grateful for [the help], but boy is this less than what we need... So comparing [Biden] to FDR does a disservice to one of the few who were willing to think structurally in the history of the Democratic party."

I think there is a lot of wishful thinking and hope going into these beliefs. I learned my lesson from Obama. I should have known better, but I got caught up in Hope and Change. I can’t blame Obama: “wishful thinking and status quo” just isn’t an engaging message.
