Richard Wolff On Defunding The Military-Industrial Complex

In this clip from the Waking Up With Julianna Forlano show, Professor Richard D. Wolff discusses how “if we stop funding the Military-Industrial Complex we could afford the greening of America, the infrastructure program, the American family program. All of these things wouldn’t require a nickel of government extra borrowing, no more extra deficit… because we would stop making guns and missiles, and make plowshares.” Professor Wolff is an American Economist, known for his work on economic methodology and class analysis. He is Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York. Wolff has also taught economics at Yale University, City University of New York, University of Utah, University of Paris I (Sorbonne), and The Brecht Forum in New York City.
