One thought on “Economic Update with Richard Wolff

  1. Hello Dr. Wolff. I can’t express to you the depth of my appreciation for the work you’ve been doing the past several years. Thank you for bringing it to Kansas City.

    My question to you is this – can you please elaborate on the various ideological forms that fall under the umbrella of “socialist thought”? You were the person who made me aware of socialism’s existence in the first place, but in my own research I was shocked to see the stark differences in ideologies such as Anarcho-Syndicalism, Bolshevism, and Social Democracy – all “isms” that are socialist to some degree, but very different from one another. A more specific comparison – some socialists reject the market as a morally bankrupt institution, some are content to see the market function as long as enterprises function as democratic cooperatives.

    Will you please elaborate on these distinctions and offer your perspective on which socialist ideas specifically you see as offering viable solutions to our current economic problems? Do you reject the market? And, if so, what alternatives does the United States have to it?

    Thanks,

    Trevor in KCMO
