PROJECT CENSORED 2012 SPECIAL with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips

Theresa Mitchell of Presswatch and Per Fagereng of Fight the Empire co-host a special program with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored to talk about the release of Censored 2012, which Celebrates 35 Years of Project Censored.

In the last 35 years, the so-called mainstream media have been co-opted into a propaganda machine for the transnational corporate power structure, which serves a US/NATO Military Industrial Media Empire instead of We the People.

Project Censored resists the goals of global empire at the expense of human rights, we resist top down managed news in favor of a truly free press, and we resist censorship in all its guises.

Sheila Bair on her book "Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself"

program date: 
Fri, 03/22/2013

Host Gene Bradley interviews Sheila Bair, former Chairperson of the FDIC and author of "Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself."

Sheila Bair is widely acknowledged in government circles and the media as one of the first people to identify and accurately assess the subprime crisis. Appointed by George W. Bush as the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2006, she witnessed the origins of the financial crisis and in 2008 became—along with Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner—one of the key players trying to repair the damage to our economy. Bull by the Horns is her honest account of that contentious time and the struggle for reform that followed and continues to this day.

 

Bair was often one of the few women in the room during heated discussions about the economy. Despite her years of experience and her determination to rein in the private banks and Wall Street, she frequently found herself at odds with Geithner. She is withering in her assessment of some of Wall Street’s finest, and her narrative of Citibank’s attempted takeover of Wachovia is a stinging indictment of how regulators and the banks worked against the public interest at times to serve their own needs.

Leo Panitch on his book ""The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire"

program date: 
Fri, 03/22/2013

Leo Panitch is a Distinguished Research Professor, political economist, Marxist theorist and editor of the Socialist Register.

In this interview Leo Panitch discusses "The Making of Global Capitalism" and the intimate relationship between modern capitalism and the American state, including its role as an “informal empire” promoting free trade and capital movements. He also discusses how the US has superintended the restructuring of other states in favor of competitive markets and coordinated the management of increasingly frequent financial crises.

The Making of Global Capitalism, through its highly original analysis of the first great economic crisis of the twenty-first century, identifies the centrality of the social conflicts that occur within states rather than between them. These emerging fault lines hold out the possibility of new political movements transforming nation states and transcending global markets.

Margrit Kennedy on her book Occupy Money: Creating an Economy where Everybody Wins

program date: 
Fri, 03/22/2013

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Margrit Kennedy, an outspoken critic of the current global economic system and an internationally-renowned advocate of alternative regional and complementary currencies, about her new book "Occupy Money: Creating an Economy where Everybody Wins."

Compound interest and inflation have caused our monetary system to balloon to the point where bailing out banks, large corporations, and even entire countries will not prevent a complete breakdown of the global economy - unless we change the system in fundamental ways. Margrit Kennedy says it's time for a grassroots movement to knock conventional money off its pedestal and replace it with a fresh paradigm that puts people before profits.

Margrit Kennedy's most famous book, "Interest and Inflation-Free Money: Creating an Exchange Medium that works for Everybody and Protects the Earth" has been translated into 23 languages and is considered a landmark work in the field of sustainable economics. Margrit also coauthored (with Bernard Lietaer)" Regional Currencies: A New Path to Sustainable Prosperity," which is a standard of the regional money movement.

The effects of fluoridating chemicals on the environment and especially on salmon.

Categories:
program date: 
Tue, 10/09/2012

On September 12th Portland city council voted 5-0 to add fluoridating chemicals to our Bull Run water. 

This is a highly contentious issue that Portland citizens have already rejected three times at the polls and a recent survey shows ¾ of Portlanders opposed to this council action.

 KBOO's Joe Meyer speaks with scientists Howard Patterson and Jeff Fryer about the effects of fluoride in the environment after it goes down the drain.

The basic message is that the effect of fluoride in the environment is understudied and that what little research exists points to deleterious effects on salmon even at low concentrations.  The bigger worry is the un-studied effects of fluoride combining with other chemicals already dumped in our ecosystem and the long-term effects through bioaccumulation on the entire food chain.
