Variations on a theme. KD explores why the Powers-That-Be try to suppress the word "capitalism." Economist Richard D. Wolff explores the public's growing disillusionment with the U.S. economic system and explores the prospects for change.

We'll hear also a song by the late Anne Feeney: "Winter, Go Away." One line of the song--which implies that winter is warmer in Texas--inspires a preface on the death toll from Texas' profit-driven, un-winterized electric system. (Cont'd)
Finally, we read an article on the huge trade in IRISH slaves shipped to the New World in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The Wolff segment is from his interview with video blogger Mexie, September 15, 2020. A different portion of the original interview (edited by KD) appears as NWN #663, in November 2020. Many thanks to both Mexie and Wolff.

John Martin's "The Irish Slave Trade" was published in Global Research in 2008 (rpt., ibid., March 15, 2015). I have edited and condensed this article for radio.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "oppressive yoke") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
