In the first half of Economic Update this week, Professor Wolff discusses how and why socialism changed from what it meant in the 19th and 20th centuries (public enterprises + state planning vs capitalism’s private enterprises + markets).
During the second half of this week’s episode, Prof. Wolff leads us on an exploration of why 21st century socialism aims to democratize capitalist workplaces, replacing their top-down undemocratic organization with worker cooperatives.
