#MeToo and Corona: System is Key
_on ECONOMIC UPDATE with Richard D. Wolff

This program focuses on how the capitalist economic system plays crucial roles in the #MeToo examples of Weinstein and Cosby and also in the failed response to the Corona virus crisis. The organization of capitalist enterprises – power and wealth concentrated at the top in a tiny minority – invites and enables sexual harassment and abuse by people positioned like Weinstein and Cosby. A profit-driven medical-industrial complex did not invest in preparing for the virus and a profit-subservient gov’t failed to mobilize private and public resources to test for, contain, and overcome the disease.

Each show wraps up with Professor Wolff answering some questions that he receives through his website or on Facebook. Economic Update is in partnership with Truthout.org.
