Capitalism - Raced and Gendered: Richard Wolff and Farah Tanis
For a lot of people, the rise of Donald Trump and "Trump-ism" represents the ascendancy galore of capitalism. Economics professor Richard Wolff respectfully disagrees. Farah Tanis, co-founder and executive director at Black Women's Blueprint, also believes in building authentic, alternative livelihoods. Hear their points of view on this week's episode of the "Laura Flanders Show."
Mainstream media keep telling us that Trump voters are sticking by him. But are they? And what do so-called swing voters really want? Working America, the community organizing affiliate of the A.F.L.-C.I.O., took to the streets and sidewalks of central Ohio to find out. Matt Morrison, the deputy director of Working America, is here with us to share the findings of the Front Porch Focus Group and what lessons progressives can take into the 2018 election. Plus, a report from the field canvassers in Ohio on the response they received during the process.
