Economic realities and their theories define our world regardless of where we live.
After a while, they deserve reexamination to see if they measure up to our needs, interests
and values. This week Ellen visits with Prof. Cynthia Kaufman about her book Getting Past Capitalism and looks
at some of its systemic failings and limitations. Similarly, students around the world are demanding
reexamination of the prevailing economics canon hoping to institute a broader, more politically responsible view of
economic theory. Co-host Walt McRee talks with an organizer of the “Rethinking Money NY”
conference taking place this weekend at Columbia.
