Economic Update: Puerto Rico: Colony and Laboratory

Sunday, 11 November 2012 14:11 By Richard D. Wolff, Economic Update / Truthout | Radio Segment

Media

Updates on Obama's re-election, unemployment's social costs, and Kodak's betrayal of retirees. Interview journalist Ed Morales: history of Puerto Rico as US colony and policy laboratory and global crisis's impact on Puerto Rico since 2007. Response on how differently educated, trained, and skilled workers could fully, democratically participate in workers self-directed enterprises (WSDEs).
 
On Economic Update with Professor Richard Wolff, Wolff and guests will discuss the current state of the economy, both locally and globally in relation to the economic crisis.

Wolff will focus on wages, jobs, taxes, and debts - and on interest rates, prices, and profits. We aim to explain why certain economic changes are happening and other changes get postponed or blocked and we will explore alternative ways to organize enterprises, markets, and government policies. Economic Update is a weekly show for people who want to understand and change not only their own financial situation but also the larger economy we all depend on.
