Short Description: 
Jeffrey Winters, professor of Political Economy at Northwestern and author of "Oligarchy"

Host Cecil Prescod speaks with Professor Jeffrey Winters, author of the new book "Oligarchy," Winters says: "By choosing Wall Street as the origin of their action, and by focusing on the gap separating the 1% from 99%, the Occupy movement has hit upon the chronic problem of oligarchy and democracy in America. The power of concentrated wealth has overwhelmed and effectively disenfranchised the majority of American citizens. One person/one vote will be meaningless in U.S. politics unless the distorting power of wealth is addressed. Failing to do so could result in a deep crisis of legitimacy in American democracy."

Renewable energy - Why it shouldn't be discredited because of Solyndra's failure

Solyndra, a solar power company that got more than half a billion dollars in loan guarantees from a Department of Energy Recovery Act program, went bankrupt at the beginning of September. The reason why it happened and who’s to blame is still unclear, but that’s not the main issue taking place in the political field.

Opponents of clean energy who favor fossil fuels want the U.S. public to think that clean energy is weak, unreliable, marginal, and dependent on government subsidies. They have been trying to make that case for a long while. They are trying to use Solyndra as a symbol, something to use as a stand-in to discredit not just the DOE loan program, but all government support for clean energy.

The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Charles Fishman, author of The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water, which explores our strange and complex relationship to water. We love water — but at the moment, we don’t appreciate it or respect it. Just as we’ve begun to reimagine our relationship to food, a change that is driving the growth of the organic and local food movements, we must also rethink how we approach and use water.

In the course of reporting about water to write The Big Thirst, Fishman has stood at the bottom of a half-million-gallon sewage tank, sampled water directly from the springs in San Pellegrino, Italy, and Poland Spring, Maine, and carried water on his head for 3 km with a group of Indian villagers.

On October 5, Cecil and Celeste speak with Bill Fletcher, Jr. and Fernando Gapasin, authors of "Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and A New Path Toward Social Justice".

Solidarity Divided is a critical examination of labor's current crisis and a plan for a bold new way forward into the 21st century. Bill Fletcher and Fernando Gapasin, longtime union insiders whose experiences as activists of color grant them a unique vantage on the problems now facing U. S. labor, offer a mix of history and probing analysis.  Ultimately calling for a wide-ranging re-examination of the ideological and structural underpinnings of today's labor movement, this is essentila reading for understanding how the battle for social justice can be fought and won. newunionism.wordpress.com/2009/07/21/solidarity-divided-the-crisis-in-organized-labor-and-a-new-path-toward-social-justice/

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
