A fine audio collage--originally titled "Observations on Work"--by Chazk, a.k.a. Virtual Renderings. An intriguing and sometimes rocking blend of satire, music, and also analysis by several voices (among them Richard Wolff's). It explores the economic problems of our time--fallling wages, consumer debt, overwork, unemployment, decline of manufacturing, corrupt politicians, crooked banks and bankers, soaring corporate profits, and stratospheric executive salaries ... among others.
I have slightly condensed the original audio collage--mostly by shortening some of the musical selections. The original is available on Radio4all.net.
This program was previously broadcast, as NWN # 371, in April 2015.
