Old Mole Variety Hour on 12/05/11
Joe Clement hosts this Old Mole and we hear:
- Bill Resnick talks with Chris Williams about the International Climate Change Conference and how the US is undermining it.
- Clayton reads and comments on an essay by marxist economist, Richard Wolff, about the significance of workplace democracy for the Occupy movement.
- Laurie Mercier talks with Desiree Hellegers about the the unhoused, espcially women, and how the Occupy movement is bringing new attention to their plight.
- Joe reads two inter-related blog-posts by sociologist Peter Frase, who argues that simply attacking exectutive pay and effectively demanding to take the capitalists out of capitalism leaves the system largely untouched.
