How Does the U.S. Pay for TWO Wars? (w/ Richard Wolff)

After the siege of Gaza began, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen sought to assuage the public about America’s investment in Israel: Don’t worry, she said, we can afford two wars — both the war in Ukraine and Israel’s bombardment of Palestine. I asked Marxist economist, New School professor, & Janet Yellen’s classmate: Is she right? What about the inflationary effect of military spending? Do alternative ways to address inflation like a wage/price freeze undermine our labor goals? And what’s next for the Cornel West campaign? We discuss it all on this week’s free episode.
