Economic Update: Faith and Labor Fight Inequality

This week’s episode discusses how golf courses are economically undemocratic, how US drug corporations block cheap medicine imports, why US corporations don’t deserve tax cuts, how Monsanto bought academic research to keep Roundup on the market, and the economics and politics of scapegoating immigrants in the US and Germany. The episode also includes an interview with Joerg Rieger and Rosemarie Henkel-Rieger on how they combine faith and labor advocacy to fight inequality.
