Socialism vs. Capitalism: My Debate with John Marsh

Summary:
Here’s the video for my Socialism vs. Capitalism debate with John Marsh.  (Not to be confused with my earlier debate on the same topic with Elizabeth Bruenig).  Marsh is an English professor at Penn State, but I’d say his knowledge of social science favorably compares to most tenured professors in the social sciences.  (And he’s fun to talk literature with as well!)  Here‘s an earlier exchange the two of us had on education and poverty.
