Your Call: What are the best solutions for reversing inequality and stagnant wages?
On the Oct 26th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with economist Richard Wolff about rising inequality. The top 20% of US households own more than 84% of the wealth.
Professor Wolff says that the first step in understanding income and wealth inequalities is to grasp a basic truth about modern capitalist economic systems. So, what do we need to know about how capitalism contributes to the growing economic crisis? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
Richard Wolff, emeritus professor of economics at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the author of Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism
