Looking at why shale gas is not the 'game-changer' touted in Wall Street's propaganda mills
Host Lisa Loving speaks with Bill Powers about his book, "Cold, Hungry and in the Dark: Exploding the Natural Gas Supply Myth." Does shale gas change everything?

Can traditional reform politics address these problems or is the system broken? Broken, according to political economist Gar Alperovitz, but that doesn't mean the game's over. In his recently published What Then Can We Do? Straight Talk About the Next the American Revolution Alperovitz offers a 'checkerboard' of hope -- real alternatives that are already happening to build community-sustaining economies and to democratize wealth from the ground up.
