The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/15/11

Air date: 
Tue, 02/15/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Economist Justin Elardo joins Abe and Joe to talk about demand-side economics.

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt conceived of and executed the New Deal -- his grand plan to lift the country out of the Great Depression -- his work was guided by demand-side economics. The government would spend money to put people to work building roads, schools, bridges, dams, community centers and a whole array of infrastructure projects, many of which are still in use today. In turn, these gainfully-employed Americans would circulate their wages through the economy, creating demand for goods and services of all kinds. The money needed to hire these workers was raised through a combination of deficit spending and taxation of the wealthy, at rates that would be considered scandalous today.

Rethinking psychiatry: a conversation with Robert Whitaker about a more compassionate mental health system

Our treatment of those in emotional distress manifests itself everyday. Too many Oregonians struggling with mental health issues can be found heavily medicated and warehoused. Or, they are turned out onto the streets to become the victims of crime or institutional violence as in the case of James Chasse. This is an issue that goes beyond public policy reform. It is one that calls for a fundamental reexamination of the "broken brain" model of psychiatry upon which those policies are based.

program date: 
Mon, 02/07/2011

After the uprisings in Tunis and then Egypt, many commentators were hesitant to embrace the as democratic. In The Guardian, Slavoj Zizek calls out this hesitation and the sometimes racist rationale that backs it up as hypocrisy. What's going on in Egypt IS democracy, as as Zizek puts it in an interview on Al Jazeera "universalism at work," but there is nothing to fear unless you are part of the power elite.
