“Noam Chomsky on Prospects and Tasks as 2021 Begins”

This week, Professor Wolff gives updates on President-elect Biden’s economic advisor “team”, how Argentina’s women’s movement leads the defeat of the government and Roman Catholic Church oppositions to win legalized abortion and now targets other basic social changes, and how the deepening inequality of US wealth and income cause and reflect the growing gap between stock market prices and the depressed Main street US economy. The second half features an interview with Noam Chomsky on political and economic realities and possibilities facing us in 2021.

Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff  is a weekly nationally syndicated program produced by Democracy at Work and hosted by Richard D. Wolff. The program explores complex economic issues and empowers listeners with information to analyze not only their own financial situation but the economy at large. Beyond focusing a critical eye on the economic dimensions of everyday life – wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices, and profits – the program also explores systemic solutions to our economy’s problems including alternative ways to organize porduction and distribution of the goods and services we all depend on.
