Capitalism versus Democracy
_on ECONOMIC UPDATE with Richard D. Wolff

On this week’s show, Prof. Wolff presents an analysis of how and why capitalism is an undemocratic economic system. The first half is devoted to the micro-level, namely to the organization of the enterprise (factory, office or store). Its undemocratic character is exposed using examples and empirical evidence. The second half has a macro-level focus that shows how capitalism’s generation of growing income and wealth inequality impels the employer class (a small numerical minority) to use their money politically. Their practice undermines real democracy leaving only its empty forms.

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.
