For today’s show, host Esty Dinur welcomes back renowned economist Richard Wolff for a discussion of ongoing crises of the day—including hurricane season, inflation and world economics, the war in Ukraine, and American hostilities toward China—and why there’s no shame in being a socialist.


Richard D. Wolff is professor of economics emeritus of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a visiting professor in the graduate program in international affairs at the New School University, NYC. He is the founder of Democracy at Work and host of their nationally syndicated show Economic Update. His latest book is The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself (Democracy at Work, 2020). His books, including Understanding Socialism and Understanding Marxism, can be found at www.democracyatwork.info.
