Segment 2: An Interview with Professor/Author Richard Wolff

SEGMENT BEGINS AT 23:42

Highly-successful author, expert economist, and emeritus Professor Richard Wolff returns to our podcast to discuss the current market environment with Jerry. Also, he offers a fresh look at Karl Marx and socialism through his new book: Understanding Marxism.

  • Sanders has achieved a historic victory by breaking the taboo of socialism in the U.S.
  • On average in economic history, there is a downturn in capitalism every 4-7 years
  • A symbol of the imbalance in the U.S. is the inequality
  • Marxism is the critical shadow of capitalism
  • There is no reason to be afraid of the debate between capitalism and socialism
  • Marxism is the most developed accumulation of criticism – and is the “child” of capitalism
  • Much of what is perpetuated in Karl Marx’ name is a case of unintended consequences
  • The demonization of socialism is the fear that the leaders of capitalism won’t be the leaders of socialism
