Good evening, podcast listeners! We’ve got a great episode for you this week as our host, Richard Aldous, speaks with Maria Snegovaya about Russia’s response to the oil-price plunge before discussing Karl Marx and American capitalism with Ronald W. Dworkin.

First, we welcome back Maria Snegovaya, Ph.D. candidate at Columbia University and columnist at Vedomosti, to the show to discuss what effect low oil prices are having on Putin and the Kremlin.

Then, Ronald W. Dworkin, M.D., Ph.D., makes his debut on the podcast, in which he examines the lessons Karl Marx might have for American capitalism and arguies that crony capitalism is a form of neo-feudalism.

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and follow Maria Snegovaya @MSnegovaya and our host Richard Aldous @RJAldous on Twitter.
