This episode provides updates on UK elections, and the long-term effects of economic crises and the demonization of the poor in Kansas. We also respond to questions regarding the economics of child support and how car production is moving to Mexico. Finally, we give an in-depth critical analysis of the history of capitalism and war, the new stages of Cuban socialism and US Cuba-policy, and the high stakes of Greece’s economic situation.
