Hosted by Richard Wolff
Economic Update is a weekly program hosted by Richard D. Wolff, Professor of Economics. Begun on a single Pacifica station in March 2011, it is now regularly played on 45 stations nationwide. Wolff’s specialty on this program is to take complex economic issues and make them understandable, empowering listeners with information to analyze not only their own financial situation but the economy at large. By focusing on the economic dimensions of everyday life – wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices, and profits – the program explores alternative ways to organize markets, and government policies.
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 focuses on wages, jobs, taxes, and debts – and on interest rates, prices, and profits.
