Host Per Fagereng interviews Ellen Hodgson Brown, author of "The Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth about Our Money System and How We Can Break Free." Ellen Brown says the banking system has been contrived so that big banks always get bailed out by the taxpayers from their risky ventures, but the scheme has reached its mathematical limits. There isn't enough money in the entire global economy to bail out the banks from a massive derivatives default today. When the investors realize that the "insurance" against catastrophe that they have purchased in the form of derivatives is worthless, they are liable to jump ship and bring the whole shaky edifice crashing down.

Arundhati Roy - Terrorism: No Easy Answers (interview)

Host David Barsamian speaks with Arundhati Roy, the celebrated author of "The God of Small Things" and winner of the prestigious Booker Prize. "The New York Times" calls her, "India's most impassioned critic of globalization and American influence." Howard Zinn praises her "powerful commitment to social justice." She is the recipient of the Lannan Award for Cultural Freedom. Her latest books are "The Checkbook & the Cruise Missile," a collection of interviews with David Barsamian, and "An Ordinary Person's Guide to Empire."

There are myriad types of terrorism. But the focus is highly selective. 200,000 Indian farmers killing themselves because of debt or 4,000 children dying everyday around the world because of no access to clean water are not considered. Nor are massacres of Muslims in the Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra or of Sikhs
in New Delhi.  Nor are the tens of thousands of Kashmiris killed by the Indian military. The attention and emphasis is overwhelmingly on car bombings, 9/11 and Mumbai type of attacks. Massive state terrorism is not up for discussion unless the state is a designated enemy of Washington's such as Iran and Syria. America and its allies
such as Israel and India get a free pass. Can you imagine Charlie Rose or Wolf Blitzer asking Kissinger or Rice or other apparatchiks of the empire about state terrorism? Maybe when pigs fly.

Host Stephanie Potter speaks with Andrew Nikiforuk, author of "Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent." Canada is the largest supplier of oil to the U.S. Canada now produces more oil than Texas or Saudi Arabia. Canadian tar sand oil is dirtier and more environmentally destructive than conventional oil. 

In his recent book Tar Sands: Diry Oil and the Future of a Continent, Nikiforuk critiques the oil industry, oil-friendly bureaucrats, and petrol-guzzling North Americans for contributing to the problem. Nikiforuk will speak on Tuesday March 31st at 7-9 PM at the First Unitarian Church at SW 12th and Main. This is a KBOO co-sponsored event.
