Economic Update: Extreme Capitalism

This episode looks at low Irish taxes on corporations, interns fighting back, the thriving opium market, Volkswagen bringing new labor relations to the US and big banks caught cheating again. We also discuss college sports, the business oligarchy in the US and forgiving countries’ debts. Finally, we respond to listeners’ questions on domestic outsourcing and the democracy of workers’ self-directed enterprises.
