This episode provides updates on Spain’s new left government, how Harvard is run like a business and new research showing how widespread hunger is. We also respond to listeners’ questions on why corporations buyback their own shares and why the “new” gig economy is not new. Finally, we have major discussions comparing old socialism (where the government intervenes in the economy) to new socialism (which aims to democratize the enterprise).
