On this episode of Economic Update, Prof. Wolff discusses the public education crisis (teacher strikes, declining quality, insufficient resources) and how it undermines the economic future of the U.S. and the absurdity of the government shutdown over an ineffective wall and a tiny portion of the government's budget.

In the second half of the show, Prof. Wolff interviews Professor Alex Vitale about his book, The End of Policing, as they discuss how and why police in the U.S. have grown and changed their functions so drastically in recent decades.
