YouTube has the video Understanding money and the dollar system’s contradictions with Radhika Desai & Michael Hudson.
Economists Radhika Desai and Michael Hudson explain the relations between money and debt, their role in imperialism, and the rise of the US dollar system.
This is the third episode of their Geopolitical Economy Hour” series.
Very educational talk. They introduced some ideas I had not considered despite years of reading Michael Hudson’s books. I certainly have some questions about some of the things they said. Questions to stimulate further research, not questions to challenge what they said.
I took some quick notes to use for that further research.
