Julianna welcomes back Professor of Economics Richard D. Wolff to the show, to discuss how as disasters pile up in the US, like the recent deep freeze in Texas, wildfires, rapidly intensifying hurricanes, droughts, floods, tornadoes, heat waves, not to mention related pandemics… will there come a point when the US economy won’t be able to handle it? And how close are we to a tipping point? Professor Wolff is an American Economist, known for his work on economic methodology and class analysis. He is Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York. Wolff has also taught economics at Yale University, City University of New York, University of Utah, University of Paris I (Sorbonne), and The Brecht Forum in New York City.
