Host: Aaron Bornstein
Guest: Professor Richard Dienst
On todays show we feature a talk by Professor Richard Dienst of Rutgers University, titled "Six Ways of Being in Debt". Professor Dienst is author of the book "The Bonds of Debt: Borrowing Against the Common Good", and both the book and his lecture discuss the many ways that Debt are used to perpetuate what is effectively a class hierarchy. He then points to some ways to break these chains of debt, and move towards a society where debt is used productively, not as a tool of oppression.
