Show Notes
We interrupt our regular podcourse with a cov19 investigation with Prof Michael Hudson, reporting in from NY. One of the world’s leading economists describes what can we expect into the future, the possible remedies in the short and long run. Is it apparent that society must shrink in order for the wealth gap to continue? Understand the role of brady bonds, land price write downs and monopoly rent policy in this immediate context.

Note: monopoly/ rentier income is income property owners can claim that is above the cost of production. For example, since land was a gift to all living beings, any price charged above zero is economic rent/ rentier income.
