In this RT interview of U.S. economist Richard Wolff, broad issues of the U.S. economy are looked at, namely the increasing inequality in terms of income and economic opportunity, and the shortcomings of laissez-faire capitalism in terms of balancing self-interest and collective interest. Wolff cites the example of numerous American companies having moved operations and Americans jobs abroad, and these same companies not reinvesting in the U.S. economy like for example the German corporate sector does. Viewers may want to consider how Romney and Obama address inequality and laissez-faire economics. Also, Americans may want to consider how to create a fair playing field for economic competition. Plutocracy is rule of the rich and wealthy through a system of governance which favors the rich and wealthy.
