Economic Update: Capitalism’s Uncounted Health Costs

This week’s episode discusses Wonder Woman, the Archbishop’s critique of the economic system in the UK, US Labor Day, the McDonald’s workers strike in the UK, the economics of hurricanes and the economics of the Trump tax cut “reform.” The episode also includes an interview with Dr. Harriet Fraad on how the capitalist system’s impacts on health — from stress to death — are mostly unacknowledged in key decisions.
