Richard Wolff takes Peterson to school on Marx

Jordan Peterson only speaks for 50,000 dollars - the economics of "free speech"

Jordan Peterson said that the reason he cancelled on the scheduled debate with Douglas Lain of Zero Books was because ZB isn't popular enough. 

This does not explain why he went on the Rogan podcast weeks later to say Marxists won't debate him. 

So we scheduled a popular Marxist economist to debate Peterson, or speak in lieu  of a debate. 
Dr. Richard Wolff came /at cost/, whereas Peterson said he would not debate Wolff for less than $50,000... obviously we, a student club, don't have that kind of money, so Wolff ended up speaking to us on his own. 

Wolff gave a crash course on what every responsible citizen, Peterson included, should know about capitalism, as shown by one of its most insightful critics
