Richard D. Wolff, Prof. em. for Economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His latest book is: "Capitalism's Crisis Deepens: Essays on the Global Economic Meltdown".
Richard Wollf talks about the structural crisis of the capitalist world economy, the root causes for the rise of Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen and right-wing movements, and about the necessity for the left to come up with a plan for a new economic order. Worker cooperatives would play a key role in such an order, being supported already by the programs of Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders.
The broadcast has three parts:
1. „A Political Explosion“: The Systemic Crisis of Capitalism and the Anger of the Working Class:
2. „Donald Trump will not Succeed“ / Worker Co-ops as the Foundation of a New Economic System / „A Private Financial System is Irrational“
3. Change Is in the Air / Chances for a New Left: the Programs of Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders
