Beyond the 2020 Electoral Circus: Action February 14, 2019 | 5:00 am
Two minutes every four years, just going into the voting booth to choose a president, is hardly a sufficient tool to leverage the changes which we both need and are possible. As author Paul Street points out, idling capital is what has historically worked. A recent example is the airport workers action which put a quick stop to the government shut down. Candidates for president offer varying degrees of progressive populism, and sometimes its just a pose. Average citizens are hardly powerless despite the widely held belief. Thunder from the grassroots, idling capital, is what makes elected officials take notice and act.
Sparking Prosperity for Everyone January 31, 2019 | 5:00 am
Our guest today, Robert Friedman argues that for just a Few Thousand Dollars (the title of his book), a great many more low income Americans can contribute to their own and their childrens futures. The plan differs significantly from Universal Basic Income. And Friedman argues not only does it work but it is actually revenue neutral. Some 2020 presidential candidates have already started to pick up the idea.

Worshiping Waste As Long As It’s Military Waste December 6, 2018 | 5:00 am
If the word conservative means anything, it means conserving and not wasting money. Especially public money. How long can politicians claim to be conservative when they studiously avoid looking at obvious waste? Billions, hundreds of billions, trillions. On the first part, we look into hidden military realities in Afghanistan with Brian Cloughley former deputy head of the UN Military Mission in Kashmir, who argues Afghanistan is collapsing. Get Out: Now. What happens when the US does pull out? He says the world will just yawn. And on part two, award winning investigative reporter Dave Lindorff, who covers national security and military issues for The Nation, reveals the success of the Pentagon to crush a legally required audit. The accounting tricks are nothing short of astounding. He says its not secret money its fake money, in the trillions. Yet no one in congress speaks out. Time to stop the madness?
