Scheduled by coincidence, today's podcast is about the Greek debt crisis. To get a solid critique of the neoliberal framework being imposed upon the Greeks I turned to Dr. Richard Wolff, Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a leading neo-Marxist theorist. Rick is no wild-eyed bomb-thrower but a very sensible, insightful, and extremely well informed progressive advocate. He sees, as I do, the Greek debt problems as being a prelude to what America undoubtedly will experience somewhere further down the road. So -- with apologies to the poor Greeks -- we should learn what we can from their struggle.
As always, if you like the podcast please don't hesitate to forward the link.
