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?

Universal Basic Income: An Old Idea Whose Time is Near October 4, 2018 | 5:00 am
Economic despair in the face of unimaginable wealth? Scarcity in a reality of plenty? Is there now a case for giving every American a share of a public wealth fund? In what ways might a universal basic income work to increase productivity and economic stability? And in what ways does the idea appeal to conservatives? On this show, host Burt Cohen talks with Jim Pugh co-founder of the Universal Income Project. The idea goes back to 18th century England and President Nixon who pushed the idea in 1971. With the advent of AI and robotics, for a more secure economic future, can we afford not to open our eyes to this idea?
