Economic Update: Profits and Families

This episode discusses Irish bankers being jailed, US public pension economics and the Yale dining hall worker who won back his job after smashing a racist stained-glass window depicting slaves picking cotton. We also interview Dr. Harriet Fraad on how the post-1970s profit-driven US economy badly damaged intimate life.
