For our episode last week on Janus v. AFSCME, we were supposed to include an interview with Howard Botwinick, a professor of economics at SUNY Cortland. Unfortunately, Howard got sick at the last moment, so we decided to rescheduled the interview and publish it as a bonus podcast episode. We had a fantastic conversation on the limitations of classic liberal economics, the history of the labor movement in the US, the implications of Janus case, and what we really need to do from a labor perspective to support workers, not just in the US, but around the world.
Also, we had to cut the interview for time, but our Patreon subscribers get access to the full, extended version of the our conversation, which has about an extra half hour of conversation. Become a Patreon subscriber to get access to the full interview!
