The Basic Economics of National Health Insurance
 
05:23
PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 16, 2011 The US now has one of the most expensive health care and insurance systems in the world, while its health "outcomes" - how healthy we are, how long we live, etc. - are mediocre. The reason is the absurd expenses of our peculiar health insurance and care systems because they are organized as private businesses (unlike most other advanced industrial countries in the world). If we had the government buy drugs at huge quantity discounts and pass the savings onto citizens, costs of medicines and medical equipment would drop the far lower levels in other advanced countries; if we rationalized duplication of hospitals, clinics, etc more savings would result; likewise reducing doctor's salaries to those of most other professions and insurance companies to save on their duplications and profits...such obvious steps would allow the US to support its citizens health better and at far less cost than is now the case.

The US and China: a Fragile and Dangerous Codependency Relationship - Professor Richard D Wolff
 
07:46
PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 16, 2011 Over the last 30 years, the US consumer became dependent on importing relatively inexpensive goods made in China - and US employers could keep real wages from rising and profits soaring because of that. The US government became dependent on China because China used the dollars earned from exporting to the US to buy US Treasury bonds making China the US's largest creditor in the world today. China, in turn, made its industrialization dependent on exporting to the US. It can provide jobs to the many millions streaming off of China's rural countryside only because it could produce and sell exports especially to the US. Without those markets, the social stability of China would be jeopardized. And China holds an estimated $2 trillion of its reserves in dollars that make it dependent on the value of that currency and how the US government shapes that value. Each side distrusts as well as needs the other: a dangerous codependency. Original Video: http://rdwolff.com/content/special-comments-short-clips .......

Immigration: Costs, Benefits and How Best to Respond
 
06:59
Immigrants come to the US because their economic and political conditions push them to leave home. What pulls them to the US are employers seeking workers who will accept lower than average US wages. Higher profits flow to employers of immigrants (and even higher for employers of undocumented immigrants afraid to demand their legal rights). Yes, immigrants lower wage levels, but they also buy m,any products and thus support jobs for non-immigrants in the US; they pay taxes that support government services for everyone; they add immeasurably to US culture. No one knows or can measure all the consequences of immigration to get a "net" result. Employers' demands for immigrants have kept up the flow despite decades of border patrols, fines, fences, and laws. Best response to immigration would be for US unions and others to organize immigrant workers as fast as possible to demand and obtain similar wages and working conditions as non-immigrant laborers.

"Intro to Marxian Economics" 3 (6of8) - Richard D Wolff
 
13:31
This four part course provides a working foundation in the core concepts of Marxian economic theory -- necessary and surplus labor, labor power, surplus value, exploitation, capital accumulation, distributions of the surplus, capitalist crises, and the differences between capitalist and other class structures. In addition, these core concepts will be systematically used to understand current social problems (including political and cultural as well as economic problems). The goal is to enable students to apply Marxian economics in their own efforts to analyze society and to strategize politically today. This course was taught in the Spring of 2009 at the Brecht Forum in New York, NY.

The Property Tax Scandal in The US
 
05:08
PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 16, 2011 Local governments in the US (cities, towns and villages) rely chiefly on property taxes to fund their activities (public education, police, fire protection, etc.). However not all property is taxed: only land, buildings, automobiles and a few other items of "real" or "tangible" property is actually taxed. The kind of property that is UNTAXED in the US is "intangible" property: chiefly that property in the form of stocks and bonds. No level of government taxes that property. As that kind of property is owned chiefly by the richest among us, exempting intangible property from taxation is a gross bias toward the rich in our system: a scandal always and a special scandal in a time of service and employment cutbacks by cities and towns claiming they "have no money."
