This week’s show provides updates on students in Montreal fighting against tuition hikes, on the global economic slowdown (again) and Spain’s bank crisis and on the big pay for the CEOs of top financiers. Wolff ends the show with analysis of Wisconsin’s and California’s elections and of the huge Mondragon cooperative corporation.
