Global Capitalism: Monthly Economic Update
“Winners and Losers in Today’s Shifting Capitalism”
These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month. Then Wolff analyzes several major economic issues. For July 22nd, these will include:
1. Greece and the choking of Europe’s welfare state
2. Capitalism’s shift from “old centers” (north America, western Europe, and Japan) to “new centers” (China, India, Brazil, etc.) brings harsh politics
3. Financing workers coops as a better way forward

But there’s an alternative: community wealth building, which focuses on building collaborative, inclusive, and locally controlled economies.
