Host Ani will discuss economics and actual wealth with her guest Will Newman II, student, teacher, rabble rouser and general ne'er do well, who is also the Research and Education Director of Oregon Sustainable Agriculture Land Trust (OSALT).

We will discuss some basics of the economy, and the difference between money and wealth. The U$ treasury, the Federal Reserve, and Congress have poured at least 7 trillion dollars (that looks like $7,000,000,000,000, just in case you were wondering) into this failing economy, but can this system be saved? Or are the very fundamental principles of this economic system based in fictions and pyramid schemes?
