Hello everybody, today on ideology explained we will go over an actual ideology and not just an economic system! I will tell you about Marxism.

Today’s EU:  Trump’s State of the Union

This is today’s economic update from Richard Wolff for Democracy at Work and for our Patreon community. I want to speak very briefly today about one particular assertion by President Trump in the State of the Union message that subsequently got quite a bit of play, but shouldn’t have because it is a classic misrepresentation […]

The Forgotten Colony: Puerto Rico

The Forgotten Colony: Puerto Rico

It’s a clear colonial situation, they don’t care about the people who live here in Puerto Rico. I’m talking about the U.S. government. They care about the land and the resources that Puerto Rico has but don’t care in any sense about the people. We’ve been in crisis for a long time now, y’know. It […]
