Dr. Dollar, aka economist Arthur McEwan, talks with Bill Resnick about the current economic crisis, how bad it might be, and how it should be resolved in the interests of working people. McKewan writes for Dollars & Sense, and his latest book is Neoliberalism or Democracy?
Robyn Shanti speaks with Michael Shuman, author of "Going Local: Creating Self Reliant Communities in the Global Age" and "The Small-Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses Are Beating the Global Competition."
Per Fagereng speaks with Ellen Brown, who developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In "Web of Debt", her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and "the money trust." She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back.
Socialism for the rich, the state of the economy, and political art and theater
On the Old Mole Variety Hour, we will hear what’s ahead for the declining US economy, and how the welfare state for the rich socializes risks and privatizes profits: When corporations win, they win; when they lose, we all pay. The Moles will also talk with members of the Just Seeds Art Collective and review the play "Man to Man" about a German woman who switched identities to survive the Nazis.
