Economic Update — Failing Capitalism’s Rescue By Fascism, Brutish Nationalism & Corporate Welfare

Fascism is used by the wealthy to save the corrupt & broken system that made them wealthy and to get rid of the critics.

[Editor’s Note: Professor Wolff puts the chaos of  the Trump administration in context, revealing the metastasizing fascist order and strategy at work in the nation. – Mark L. Taylor]

Economic Update / Democracy at Work (3/25/19)

On this week’s show Prof. Wolff presents an in-depth analysis of fascism as massive government intervention to protect and save a crashing capitalism. We focus on today’s examples, historical parallels (in Germany and Italy), and how “strong men” leaders push fascist agendas. We discuss how fascism and socialism differ and how nationalism serves as fascism’s social “disguise.

Democracy At Work Institute

US Federation of Worker Owned Cooperatives 

The Democracy at Work Institute advances the worker cooperative field in order to create a fairer economy and better jobs.
As a think-and-do-tank, the Institute brings on-the-ground experience with cooperative business to a birds-eye view of the national stage. We develop standards and leaders, gather models and best practices, coordinate existing resources, and advocate for worker cooperatives as a community economic development strategy.
The Institute was created by the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives (USFWC) to expand worker ownership in a movement that is adequately supported, effective, and strategically directed. Our work ensures that our growth is rooted in worker cooperatives themselves at the same time as it reaches new communities most directly affected by inequality.
