Lawless Capitalism with professor and author Steven Ramirez

Program: 
More Talk Radio
Air date: 
Mon, 10/14/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Discussion of how the economic crisis is the result of a gross failure of law
In this innovative and exhaustive study, Steven A. Ramirez posits that the subprime mortgage crisis, as well as the global macroeconomic catastrophe it spawned, is traceable to a gross failure of law. The rule of law must appropriately channel and constrain the exercise of economic and political power. Used effectively, it ensures that economic opportunity isn’t limited to a small group of elites that enjoy growth at the expense of many, particularly those in vulnerable economic situations. In Lawless Capitalism, Ramirez calls for the rule of law to displace crony capitalism. Only through the rule of law, he argues, can capitalism be reconstructed.

the U.S. invaders and their warlord clients should run the country. There are an estimated 850 children dying every day (see Save the Children). Meanwhile, we're spending $1 million per year just to deploy one 
soldier."

"Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Steven Fake, co author with Kevin Funk of "Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Steven Fake and Kevin Fink have been researching and writing about Sudan since 2006. Their book is a scathing, indictment of the constellation of government leaders, corporate media outlets, and NGOs swirling around Sudan and the myriad ways in which the West has failed Darfur. They look at the NGO culpability, not just at US foreign policy.

Celeste and Cecil will ask Steven Fake about the history of US relations with Sudan, the level of funding of humanitarian efforts in Africa, and some of the contradictions in how aid and humanitarian efforts are distributed.

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
