[S11 E06] The Political Right in Anger & Mourning

On this week's show, Prof. Wolff presents updates on the radical policies of Berlin's city gov't and its Die Linke Party; why raising minimum wage to $15/hour is too little, too late; how bans on evictions and utility shut offs fight Covid-19; and lastly, he argues for the urgent need for a changed China policy. On the second half of the show, Wolff interviews Prof. Arlie Hochschild on her 10 year study of the US political right.
