This week’s episode provides updates on the successful Oregon teaching assistants’ strike, evicting the homeless, a law that limits unpaid internships to four weeks and universities becoming businesses. We respond to listeners’ questions on the economics of war and the military in US and on political corruption in the new budget. Finally, we discuss of the sharp decline in most Americans’ wealth since 2007, coupled with widening wealth gaps between whites and people of color.
