On today's episode Walter Smolarek and Prof. Richard  Wolff discuss a leaked memo written by a top Bank of America economist  that reveals in explicit terms the strategy of the capitalist class:  cause as much suffering among workers as possible  to rebalance the economy in favor of the rich. As the U.S. begins to  experience an intentionally-caused recession, it is now even clearer  that this is a matter of class struggle.

Professor Richard Wolff is an author & co-founder of the organization Democracy at Work. You can find his work at
