(Class War, Oil War and the Economy)

Download Hour1 Download Hour2 Webster's dictionary defines economy as: a system of producing, distributing, and consuming wealth. A neutral description of a social construct that is far from neutral. Who decides what wealth is and how it is produced, distributed and consumed? What ideological assumptions underlie this process, and what policies are implemented in its service, by whom, and to what ends? We have heard the term war economy, which suggests that there is also a peace economy. If so, we have never experienced it, because, as you will hear from several angles on the program this week, the economy we have is in itself a war, a war between nations and a war within nations.
