Starting with New York, the US is clearly in a current and incipient Coronavirus disaster. With Trump vague on much, if any, support, the US individual lack of (state created) money doesn’t bear thinking about – as this well put together and interesting half hour video episode of Ross Ashcroft’s ‘Renegade Inc’ all too evidently suggests.
Ross interviews two American economists: Richard Wolff and Michael Hudson. Both are worth listening to. But Michael Hudson in the second half of the programme is, for me, especially good, particularly if your time is limited. This is the link.
