Economic Update: Transition Beyond Capitalism

This week’s episode discusses the economic costs and benefits of refugees, the rise of BRICS nations in the world economy, the closing and privatization of US public libraries, the magnitude of slavery and forced child labor in the current world economy, and how the “gig” economy is just another effort to profit by lengthening the working day. This episode also includes a discussion on the transition from capitalism to an economic system based on worker cooperatives.
