Unclear about exactly what the WTO (World Trade Organization) does and how it uses its powers? Mary Bottari, Director of Global Trade Watch's Harmonization Project, lays it all out in this lucid interview with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick.
Host Dr. David Naimon talks with journalist Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. Pollan's advice to "Eat food, not much, and mostly plants" is not quite as easy as it sounds, since most of what you find at today's grocer's is not really food, but edible food-like substances. Find out how to tell the difference between real food and the modern industrial products mislabeled as food, and why you should make the distinction.
The economy seems to be melting down--but it has nothing to do with the production of goods and services, only with high finance. This crisis is brought to you by business men who refuse to trust other busness men--because the all know they're all lying. This from Bill Black, formerly a Federal bank examiner and now a writer on business and finance. He talks with Bill Resnick in this illuminating interview. Black is the author of The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own One.
