  • Why Ted Cruz Won Iowa

    While the attention of political pundits has already moved on to next week's New Hampshire primary, the outcome in Iowa provides an interesting preview of the road ahead. Cruz's win provides a clearer picture of GOP voters.

  • Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Roosh?

    Kelly Hayes of Truthout: "I am not afraid of Roosh Valizadeh. Because to me, he is not the face of rape. I am afraid because most of the women I know who have survived assault have not been abused by blustering creeps like Roosh."

Economic Update: Keynesian vs. Marxian Economics

Monday, 21 May 2012 00:00 By Richard D. Wolff, Economic Update / Truthout | Radio Segment

Media

Economics Professor Richard D. Wolff and guests discuss the current state of the economy, both locally and globally in relation to the economic crisis. This week's program is in a slightly different two-part format that includes: Part 1 is on how and why the government take-over of private corporations need not be and often is not "socialism" and why it is often done to strengthen private capitalists. Part 2 deals with Keynesian economics as a theory that clashes with both the mainstream economics ("neoclassical") that celebrates private capitalism and with critical theories such as Marxian economics that are opposed to capitalism.
