Economic Update: Capitalism Makes Few Winners, Many Losers

This week’s episode provides updates on Armenia’s political uprising, banks’ big profits, Harley-Davidson’s layoffs and unjust criminal penalties. We also look at financial distress in US households, Germany banning diesel engines, US drug companies putting profits above health again, and the huge wealth increase among world’s 2,754 billionaires. Finally, we interview union worker Roderick Prude and student Dylan Namm about the successful student-worker alliance in the New School University’s cafeteria struggles.
