We were joined by three guests to discuss countries in Europe in lockdown over the pandemic, Andrew Spannaus from Italy, Anna Brees from Wales, and Michael Nevradakis from Greece. We looked at day-to-day life in each of the countries, talked about UK British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to command citizens to stay at home last night, and how these measures are being taken by locals around the world.
We were joined by Carmine Sabia to talk about the stimulus package being deliberated on in Congress, what 'playing party politics' really means and whether it matters as an accusation, and to try to pry apart the unseen core of the superficial political divides in our country.
We were joined again by Marxian Economist Richard D. Wolff and libertarian economics professor Mark Frost for their two very different economic interpretations of the consequences of these political events.
