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.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. The group is organizing with other secular and faith-based groups "Camp Hope: Countdown to Change" in Chicago, four blocks from Obama's residence there. The camp begins on New Year's Day and continues to Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Kelly says "Large lobbying groups, including some of the large corporations, are pushing Obama around the clock to preserve the status quo, wage war and provide for unbridled greed. What we're asking is that the money spent on the military be spent instead on soluble problems such as lack of healthcare."

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
