U.S. Elite Fear U.S. Losing Its Dominance – Global Capitalism with Richard Wolff

Democracy At Work – Jan 29, 2023

When an empire is in decline, there is a scramble for people to take and hold on to as much as they can. Prof Wolff takes a moment to explain how the last decades of redistribution of wealth to the upper class is a sign that the U.S. is “a declining empire in which those at the top (the corporate leaders, the wealthy, the political elite, working together, intermarried, and going to the same golf courses) work a good deal to shift the burden of a declining empire off of them and on to everybody else.” While it has been going on for some time, we’re reaching the limit of what is tolerable.
