Check-out this Monthly Update for November 2014 that is given by Professor Wolff at the 51:11 mark to the 55:27 mark:

MAJORITY RULES or MONEY [Minority] RULES!!!!!!!!!!

Supposedly in democracy, the Majority [that IS us folks…the 99% - THAT IS OUR POWER] who votes WINS.

So by contrast, in a democracy the Minority [that IS them…the 1% - The RICH] who votes LOSSES…supposedly simple.

…they [the minority…the 1% (and us the MAJORITY the 99%, we BOTH)] live in a society that has ‘Universal Suffrage’…EVERYBODY VOTES … it occurs to them [the Minority…the 1% - the RICH, that]…ALL the peoples that don`t have anything, they’re [WE ARE] the MAJORITY and they [WE] might use their [OUR] VOTING POWER TO UNDO the INEQUALITY of WEALTH that pisses them [us] off…

Then Professor Wolff goes onto explain HOW:

…they [WE] might PASS A LAW to tax the crap out of me [the MINORITY…the 1% - the RICH]…

…OR they [WE] might PASS A LAW to take away the MONEY I [the MINORITY…the 1% - the RICH] HAVE THAT IS EARNING ME SO NICE…

…OR you can…fill in the blank of all the things that a creative group of peoples can come up with loads of them…

And as well between the 56:52 mark and the 58:26 mark, professor Wolff explains WHO are BEHIND the CONmen in POLITICS:

Also MONEY in ‘PUBLIC RELATIONS’ - Between the 58:27 mark and the 59:30 mark:

Plus, 'HOW ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY UNDERCUTS POLITICAL DEMOCRACY' - Professor Wolff explains two (2) ADDITIONAL ways this happens…His FIRST point (way) is explained between the 59:31 mark and the 1:06:48 mark…His SECOND point (way) has to do with ‘TASTE’…He explains what he means by that and HOW THAT RELATES TO ‘POLITICAL DEMOCRACY’, between the 1:06:49 mark and the 1:15:50 mark:

NOTE #1: Just please listen to this WHOLE video people, there are as well a lot of MORE interesting information to be had here:

NOTE #2: The release of this monthly update was delayed due to severe technical difficulties with the audio/video. It has been cleaned up as much as possible. Sorry for the long wait! Next month's update should be released within the normal 24/48 hour window.

These programs begin with 30 minutes of short updates on important economic events of the last month. Then Wolff analyzes several major economic issues.

For November 12th, these will include:

1. How the Absence of Economic Democracy Undermines Political Democracy

2. Economic Democracy and Revolution Inside Enterprises (Factories, Offices, Stores)

3. The Real Economics of Wages, Prices, and Profits

Times-up for (Globalising) capitalism...A lot of People are finally catching on to its Bullshit...The system is the real problem for [MOST] of us that live on planet earth...Capitalism is the real problem here

Professor of Economics Richard D. Wolff gives an Analysis of Capitalism:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMdIgGOYKhs

This is quite the quote from maybe Henry Rollins given by Ron Placone of the Jimmy Dore Show:

Capitalism is great, as long as you tie it down to the point where its ring finger can move just a little bit...


I just want to say here that do to the nature of capitalism, the people that don`t like the regulations that were put into place to reign in capitalism will [eventually] find ways to get around them or obfuscate them: http://www.bing.com/search?q=obfuscate+definition&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IENTSR&pc=EUPP_ or just plain eliminate them altogether...So they can
Keep-on exploiting and controlling others to get what they want.

And if a regulation that was put into place to reign in capitalism previously was either got around of or obfuscated: http://www.bing.com/search?q=obfuscate+definition&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IENTSR&pc=EUPP_ or just plain eliminated in the past...It just makes the work easier for the people that don`t like that regulation to do all that again but this time in a shorter time frame.

How US Tax System Favors the Rich - Richard Wolff

Because when you work hard to tweak the system in your favor, you get big gains. It works!

An excerpt from Global Capitalism - a monthly live speech by Richard Wolff.

Richard David Wolff is an American Marxian economist, well known for his work on Marxian economics, economic methodology, and class analysis. He is Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York. Wolff has also taught economics at Yale University, City University of New York, University of Utah, University of Paris I (Sorbonne), and The Brecht Forum in New York City.

In 1988 he co-founded the journal Rethinking Marxism. In 2010, Wolff published Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It, also released as a DVD.

I want to reiterate this folks:

Mark my words, Trump will try to sell the American people on how good 'Trickle-Down Economics' (Reaganomics) IS for the 99%,
like a good capitalistic minded corporatist shill with Sound-Good DIS-information.

He`s really a Conman (he really is for the 1%..The self-appointed elites), by stating that he is going to cut your taxes...
But, for who is that act really for!?!
