The Zero Hour: The Hatred of Government - and How to Fight It

Prof Wolff joins RJ Eskow on The Zero Hour to discuss the curated hatred of the American government and how to fight it.

"There is a fundamentalist economic belief that somehow everything done by the private sector is good productive profitable and efficient and everything done by the government is the opposite. This is total nonsense, has always been nonsense, and is refuted both theoretically and empirically. But as we know with fundamentalism in other areas, evidence and factuality don't really make much difference if there's a need to believe it. And the private sector in this country has been able to develop a hostility to the government that allows them to be deregulated in ways that are very very profitable for them." - Richard Wolff

    I would watch the American Congress on C-SPAN discussing the Intangible Property Tax Bill just for fun.
