Episode 3-16: The Falling Rate of Profit with guest Tom O’Brien

Hey everybody, for this episode Red and I were joined by a very special guest, Tom O’Brien, who is the host of the wonderful From Alpha to Omega podcast. The three of us discuss Marx’s law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall. I must say, I started out on the fence about this topic, but after listening to some of Tom’s podcast where he discusses it, and after talking with him here, I’m convinced that is correct and that it has very important effects and implications.
