Richard Wolff Economic Update & Alternative Radio
Voila`! Dr. Wolff’s first languages were French and German. He didn’t speak English until Kindergarten.
Starting Tuesday, August 14, Alternative Radio will alternate with Economic Update. Some of the greatest minds of the 20th and 21st centuries speak about massively important issues. You can see their list of speakers here.
On Economic Update with Professor Richard Wolff, Wolff and guests discuss the economic crisis, both local and global. The show focuses on wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices and profits. Wolff aims to explain why certain economic changes are happening and other changes get postponed or blocked, and explore alternative ways to organize enterprises, markets and government policies.
Economic Update is a show for people who want to understand and change not only their own financial situation but also the larger economy we all depend on.

Noam Chomsky – Threats to Peace and the Planet
Noam Chomsky – Threats to Peace and the Planet – 2 Part CD Package
Why are so many people all over the world out in the streets demanding change? What are the root causes of revolt? What about U.S. Syria policy and the betrayal of the Kurds? And BDS and Palestine? How do we overcome sectarian differences? Why are Americans so afraid? Eco-disaster and nuclear war threaten human existence. The former garners some attention because of the surge in youth-led activism but the latter is out of sight even though the dangers are escalating. The U.S. pulling out of the INF ballistic missile treaty and new Pentagon hypersonic weapons increase the possibility of catastrophe. What about impeachment and the 2020 election? These are just some of the topics Noam Chomsky talks about in this exclusive two-part interview.
Noam Chomsky, one of the greatest intellectuals of this era, practically invented the field of linguistics. In addition to his pioneering work in that field he has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. At almost 91, he is the scholar/activist par excellence. As rock star Bono called him, he is “The Rebel Without a Pause.”

Caroline Fredrickson – Fixing Democracy
In The Democracy Fix, the president of the American Constitution Society argues for progressives to focus on winning by learning from the Right that policy follows power, not the other way around. Caroline Fredrickson points to judicial elections, state power, election law and other policy areas that change the rules of the game. Fredrickson shows how to regain power, expand the franchise, end voter suppression, win judicial elections, and fight for transparency and fairness in our political system.

Nancy MacLean – Origins of Radical Right-Wing Power CD
The history of the anti-government and anti-democratic politics that have transformed the U.S. in recent years is largely obscured from view. The radical right’s agenda includes: suppression of voting rights, privatization of everything from schools to Medicare to Social Security to public lands, elimination of unions and limiting majority rule. Core beliefs also include: there is no problem tax cuts won’t solve and that the best kind of regulation is no regulation. Let industry decide. And the intellectual godfather of this extreme right-wing thinking? Someone you’ve probably never heard of. James McGill Buchanan, a Nobel Prize-winning economist. And the money to promote his ideas comes mostly from billionaire Charles Koch. These ideological positions have moved from beyond the fringe to where they are openly discussed and legislation is proposed. If these forces get their way democracy will be in chains.
