Economic Update: Collective Action for Change

This week’s episode discusses a consumer battle over airplane seat shrinkage, the “free” press and the buyers of Chicago’s Sun-Times, fake “jobs creation” for subsidies and publicity, and a new museum that features artists challenging capitalism. Also included is an interview with Dr. Harriet Fraad on why so many people hesitate so long before joining collective action to change economic and social conditions.
