Economic Update: Why Economics Is Poorly Understood

This episode covers updates on GM recalls, Cuba’s investment in medical training and Germany’s end-all tuition requirements. We also discuss why education on economics is so poor, and look at a report from the Santa Fe movement for public banking. We respond to listeners’ questions on why there hasn’t been a recovery from the crisis and how to think about transition to worker-cooperative-based economy.
