Richard Wolff Debunked: Market Solutions, Climate Change, and Child Labor

Dr. Richard Wolff posted a short clip as part of his Economic Update (EU) on the channel Democracy at Work. In it, Wolff argues that market solutions cannot address the dire issues of climate change and global warming. He cites the necessity of government abolishing child labor as evidence for this. Per the usual, Dr. Wolff’s claims are both economically illiterate and historically inaccurate.
