Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff is a weekly nationally syndicated program produced by Democracy at Work and hosted by Richard D. Wolff. The program explores complex economic issues and empowers listeners with information to analyze not only their own financial situation but the economy at large. Beyond focusing a critical eye on the economic dimensions of everyday life - wages, jobs, taxes, debts, interest rates, prices, and profits - the program also explores systemic solutions to our economy's problems including alternative ways to organize production and distribution of the goods and services we all depend on.

We are excited to announce that this week's episode of Economic Update is the first episode we have been able to release in the same timeframe as we had been doing for years until the difficulties of this past spring. This means Economic Update is back to its regular programming schedule with a new episode released each Monday. We couldn't be happier, more relieved and more excited to get back to creating the show we all have known, needed and loved since 2011 and to celebrate, we're going to release a few batches of "binge-worthy" episodes you will only find here and on our website. More details to follow and the best to stay in the know and to find out when our batch of EUs are going to drop, go to our website: and sign up for our newsletter. Be sure to check in here frequently as well, make sure you are subscribed to our channel and as always, we thank for your attention, support and solidarity. The d@w Team
