EP6: Sales Taxes, Prison Labor, and Industrial Disasters

What happens to residents 40 years after a devastating gas leak? In our special feature we converse with Madhumita Dutta about enduring suffering of Bhopal’s residents, the courageous women who have been at the forefront of the fight for justice, and examine how industrial disasters persist within a profit-driven economic framework.

In this episode’s Econ 101 segment, we delve into the ways in which working people are affected by income and sales taxes. Additionally, in our D&S feature, Chris Sturr engages in a thought-provoking discussion with Tyler Bowman, a writer incarcerated in North Carolina, about the impact of profits on prison labor.
