Wolff Responds: Lessons Learned from Corona Pandemic
Professor Wolff addresses the current pandemic caused by the capitalist system’s gross inefficiencies. Capitalism in the US failed spectacularly to plan and prepare for the outbreak. A system that focuses on profits over people doesn’t find it profitable to produce and stockpile test kits, ventilators, hospital beds, gowns, and masks making a dangerously contagious virus even tougher to fight.

“Who’s going to pay for it?”: DEVASTATING Last Words of a Coronavirus Patient
Yesterday on social media, a post by Dr. Derrick Smit went viral when he recounted how one of his recent patients, who had to go onto a ventilator, asked his final question: “Who’s going to pay for it?” For Dr. Derrick Smit, this showed how broken the American healthcare system was because during such a dark moment, people should not have to worry about their finances or burdening their loved ones.
But while Joe Biden remains wedded to profit-based models that will leave millions out, Bernie Sanders agrees with this Doctor: Only a universal, single-payer, Medicare for All system will protect Americans during the coronavirus crisis and beyond.
