Richard D. Wolff on George Orwell, the Military Industrial Complex & the Emancipation of Labour

In this video we talk to Professor of Economics Emeritus (University of Massachusetts), Marxist economist and founder of Democracy at Work, Richard D. Wolff, about George Orwell’s famous book called “1984”, and in particular, the excerpts pertaining to the military expenditure and war. In addition we also discuss the rationale behind the $700 billion U.S. military budget and why it continues to grow in scope. Lastly we touch upon the left’s perspective on work and whether the goal should be full employment or the emancipation of labour from work.
