The economy is not working for workers. What is our labor-friendly economic vision? What about workers’ councils and consumers’ councils democratically planning the economy? How is this working in Venezuela today? How could it work here? Host Jamie Partridge gives us excerpts from a talk by Economics Professor Robin Hahnel on "Participatory Economics".
A “proud product of the New Left” and sympathetic to libertarian socialism, Professor Hahnel has taught economics for thirty years at American University in Washington DC, is currently a visiting professor at Lewis & Clark College and Portland State University. He has also served as a visiting professor or economist in Cuba, Peru, Venezuela and England. Robin Hahnel is active in Portland Jobs with Justice and the Coalition for a Livable Future
