. November 18, 2012 SouthAmerica: Here is the best candidate to be the next "Secretary of Labor" of the new Barack Obama administration. The new Barack Obama administration should include economist Richard D. Wolf on top of the close circle of economic advisors to the president during his second-term. Economist Richard D. Wolf would be an excellent choice for âSecretary of Laborâ for the new administration, and he would be influential and outspoken like Secretary of Labor Robert Reich was under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997. Why? Because the newly elected head of state in China, President Xi Jinping has a doctorate in Marxist theory and ideological education, and he will be around for the next 10 years guiding the main economic competitor of the United States in the coming years Economist Richard D. Wolf, well known for his work on Marxian economics, would have a better understanding and grasp of what is really happening in China regarding its economy and the direction that China is heading in the coming years. ***** December 11, 2011 The Call for a New Capitalism with Professor Richard D.
