Economic Update: Elections but No Democracy

This episode looks at election results, Ebola, mortgage rules, China limiting executives’ pay and who has the wealth. We also discuss election economics, child poverty, capitalism and democracy. Finally, we respond to listeners’ questions on changes at Costco, so-called “nonprofits,” why there are ever more billionaires and Piketty’s problem.
