Occupy Wall Street Rediscovers the Radical Imagination

program date: 
Mon, 10/17/2011

 Joe Clement reads an essay titled "Occupy Wall Street Rediscovers The Radical Imagination" by David Graeber, a noted anthropologist-activist involved with Occupy Wall Street. He argues that if anything the occupation movement breaks a decades old consensus about the inescapability of capitalism. Joe offers his radically imaginative thoughts afterward on economic democracy and radical electoral reform.

Pursuing Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates and High Finance Carnivores: A conversation with Greg Palast

program date: 
Mon, 10/17/2011

 Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast blew the lid off voter fraud in 2000 and 2004 that threw the presidential elections into doubt. Greg has picked up the money trail again, following it to a corrupt link between Big Oil and High Finance that has produced record corporate profits whilecreating environmental disasters like the recent Gulf oil spill. This new story, captured in his latest book,Vulture's Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates, and High Finance Carnivores, reads like a pulp thriller as the Palast investigative team travels from Baku to the Arctic Circle in pursuit of this story.

The fraying of Oregon's middle class

 The Fraying of Oregon's Middle Class

Good wages, benefits and a better life for your children were what most Americans expected in return for their hard day's work. But these pieces of the American dream are fast disappearing as living wage jobs disappear, hard-won benefits are lost and earnings remain flat. When Oregon's middle class starts to unravel, what happens to the rest of the economy?

labor protests in Longview, Wash., and dabble in Gen-X cultural milestones.

program date: 
Tue, 09/27/2011

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

When the bottom fell out of the financial markets in 2008, lawmakers rushed to bail out the architects of the global crash. But this begs a question -- when will we decide to bail out the collapsed labor market?
