Encore: Taming Capitalism Run Wild

Encore: Taming Capitalism Run Wild
In an encore broadcast, Economist Richard Wolff joins Bill to shine light on the disaster left behind in capitalism’s wake, and to discuss the fight for economic justice, including a fair minimum wage. A Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, and currently Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School, Wolff has written many books on the effects of rampant capitalism, including Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It.

“We have this disparity getting wider and wider between those for whom capitalism continues to deliver the goods by all means, [and] a growing majority in this society facing harder and harder times,” Wolff tells Bill. “And that’s what provokes some of us to say it’s a systemic problem.”

From Wikipedia-"Richard D. Wolff (born April 1, 1942) is an American economist, well known for his work on Marxian economics, economic methodology, and class analysis." As you can see, professor Wolff is an April Fools Day joke.

From Wikipedia:
Richard D. Wolff (born April 1, 1942) is an American economist, well known for his work on Marxian economics, economic methodology, and class analysis. He is Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York. Wolff has also taught economics at Yale University, City University of New York, University of Utah, University of Paris I (Sorbonne), and The Brecht Forum in New York City. In 2010.

And this.

Wolff earned a BA magna cum laude in history from Harvard in 1963 and moved on to Stanford—he attained a MA in economics in 1964—to study with Paul A. Baran. Baran died prematurely from a heart attack in 1964 and Wolff transferred to Yale University, where he received a MA in economics in 1966, MA in history in 1967, and a PhD in economics in 1969. As a graduate student at Yale, Wolff worked as an instructor.[1] His dissertation, "The Economics of Colonialism: Britain and Kenya,"[6] was eventually published in book form in 1974.

Paul Alexander Baran (25 August 1909 – 26 March 1964) was an American Marxist economist. In 1951 Baran was promoted to full professor at Stanford University and Baran was the only tenured Marxian economist in the United States until his death in 1964.

The disaster left behind in capitalism’s wake became a much larger disaster when the government decided to bail it all out, doubling the national debt and pretending that a bunch of bad debt is somehow still good. If we had let all the rich people and the Golden Class (unionized fuckers via their obscene pension funds) eat their losses, we'd be well on the way back to recovering by now.

The costs of the crash were socialized, meaning everybody lost, particularly the working class who bears the most personal weight of taxation.
