Liberating Technology from Capitalism
_on ECONOMIC UPDATE with Richard D. Wolff

On this week’s show, Prof. Wolff provides updates on two small labor victories (Vermont’s AFL-CIO and 4000 pork-processing meat cutters in Sioux Falls), how global capitalism became even more unequal during the pandemic, Iceland’s move to the 4-day work week, US students hobbled by debt, and why “labor shortage” is actually class war. On the second half of the show, Wolff interviews Wendy Liu, author of “Abolish Silicon Valley: How to Liberate Technology from Capitalism.”

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.
