A Q&A with Richard Wolff - CounterPunch

A Q&A with Richard Wolff - CounterPunch | real utopias | Scoop.it

Recently, through an e-mail exchange I was able to ask Richard Wolff a few questions about economics and alternatives to capitalism. Dr. Wolff is a Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and is currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University, New York City. His published work has included multiple scholarly articles and books, such as Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It and Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism. His weekly radio program “Economic Update” is broadcast from WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City and is syndicated around the US, like in Houston at 90.1 KPFT on Friday mornings at 6 AM (when I am listening to it on the way to work).

Interview with Terry Eagleton Part 1

Terry Eagleton's witty and polemical Reason, Faith, and Revolution has caused a stir among scientists, theologians, people of faith, and people of no faith, as well as among general readers eager to understand the current "God debate."
