The Economic Crisis & the Tea Party

Arun Gupta speaks on "The Economic Crisis & the Tea Party."

You've played by the rules. Went to work every day. Paid your bills and taxes. When your country summoned you to fight in its wars you were proud to serve. You've worked hard all your life and now what do you get? Bupkis as they say in Yiddish. Goat droppings. Your job was outsourced overseas. Your house has been foreclosed. You're in debt. Meanwhile, the big banks are sitting pretty on tons of cash. The stock market and corporate profits are up. GE made billions in 2010 and didn't pay a dime in taxes. With this backdrop in walks the Tea Party. They got the answers. You know why you are getting shafted? It's the immigrants, gays, uppity women, minorities, liberals, unions, and public service workers.

Disaster capitalism swoops over Libya

Host Per Fagereng interviews journalist Pepe Escobar about Libya. According to Escobar, the next step is to get American hands on Libyan oil, and, in his words, “if this is the way that US and NATO goes, we’re going to have Iraq 2.0.”

Escobar's books include "Obama Does Globalistan." His recent pieces include "The Big Gaddafi," "The House of Saud Paranoia" and "Have Lobby, Will Travel" about "the 'rebel' government -- which is now named, after numerous permutations, the Interim Transitional National Council of Libya ... hiring [lobbying firm] Patton Boggs."

Robert C. Donnelly on his book "Dark Rose: Organized Crime and Corruption in Portland"

Host Dave Mazza speaks with Robert C. Donnelly, assistant professor of history at Gonzaga University, and author of "Dark Rose: Organized Crime and Corruption in Portland."

In April 1956, Portland Oregonian investigative reporters Wallace Turner and William Lambert exposed organized crime rackets and rampant corruption within the city's law enforcement institutions. The biggest scandal involved Teamsters officials and the city's lucrative prostitution, gambling, and bootlegging operations. Turner and Lambert blew the cover on the Teamsters scheme to take over alcohol sales and distribution and profit from these fringe enterprises. The Rose City was seething with vice and intrigue.

Short Description: 
The current austerity fetish was never a good idea, and now we know it's bad politics, too.

The austerity kick in Washington is exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time. At a time of enormous economic duress, the government is tying its own hands, robbing itself of its most effective tool in periods of high unemployment and low demand -- spending. Abandoning Keynsian economics has always carried a high human cost -- and now we know it's bad politics, too.

With Joe on hiatus, Abe surveys the economic, social and political wreckage of the new age of austerity.
