Indigenous Resistance Day

On October 12th, KBOO commemorates Indigenous Resistance Day (known to some people as 'Columbus Day') from 8 - 11 am, with talks by John Trudell and other renowned native activists.

John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and activist whose international following reflects the universal language of his words, work and message. Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. In February of 1979, a fire of unknown origin killed Trudell’s wife, three children and mother-in-law. It was through this horrific tragedy that Trudell began to find his voice as an artist and poet, writing, in his words, “to stay connected to this reality.”

Sheila Bair on her book "Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself"

program date: 
Fri, 03/22/2013

Host Gene Bradley interviews Sheila Bair, former Chairperson of the FDIC and author of "Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself."

Sheila Bair is widely acknowledged in government circles and the media as one of the first people to identify and accurately assess the subprime crisis. Appointed by George W. Bush as the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2006, she witnessed the origins of the financial crisis and in 2008 became—along with Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner—one of the key players trying to repair the damage to our economy. Bull by the Horns is her honest account of that contentious time and the struggle for reform that followed and continues to this day.

 

Bair was often one of the few women in the room during heated discussions about the economy. Despite her years of experience and her determination to rein in the private banks and Wall Street, she frequently found herself at odds with Geithner. She is withering in her assessment of some of Wall Street’s finest, and her narrative of Citibank’s attempted takeover of Wachovia is a stinging indictment of how regulators and the banks worked against the public interest at times to serve their own needs.

Leo Panitch on his book ""The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire"

program date: 
Fri, 03/22/2013

Leo Panitch is a Distinguished Research Professor, political economist, Marxist theorist and editor of the Socialist Register.

In this interview Leo Panitch discusses "The Making of Global Capitalism" and the intimate relationship between modern capitalism and the American state, including its role as an “informal empire” promoting free trade and capital movements. He also discusses how the US has superintended the restructuring of other states in favor of competitive markets and coordinated the management of increasingly frequent financial crises.

The Making of Global Capitalism, through its highly original analysis of the first great economic crisis of the twenty-first century, identifies the centrality of the social conflicts that occur within states rather than between them. These emerging fault lines hold out the possibility of new political movements transforming nation states and transcending global markets.
