Economic Update: Mainstream Economics vs. Critical Economics

This week’s episode provides updates on Mexican farm exploitation, Grenoble taking down advertising, US teachers being underpaid and cutting workers’ pensions. We respond to listeners on Harvard and Yale as full participants in capitalism’s defects. Finally, we analyze modern “economics” as a discipline, from Adam Smith to Karl Marx to the present day.
