Economic imperialism

Michael Ruppert: Can we shift out of our "economic Ponzi scheme?"

program date: 
Wed, 09/07/2011

"Unless you change how money works, you change nothing. We live in an infinite growth economy, in other words -- a ponzi scheme. Infinite growth on a finite planet is not possible. Those species who cannot get out of their paradigm are doomed to go extinct. Can we disengage from our paradigm?" Host Per Fagering speaks with Michael C. Ruppert, who is probably best known for having accurately predicted the 2008 financial crash, Peak Oil and its impacts. In April of this year he issued a compelling and detailed alert on Collapsenet that warned of a major economic implosion, followed by massive civil unrest starting in late July which is still unfolding and leading to “the collapse of human industrial civilization”.

 Theresa Mitchell with the news you're not supposed to know takes a deeper look at the nuclear crisis at Fukishima. Radioactive steam from cracks under the ground are suggesting major earthquake damage. The molten core is still fissioning--getting hotter--suggesting a "China Syndrome." The equivalent of 158 hiroshima bombs of cesium have been released. Theresa also takes a look at creating a solidarity movement here in Portland and putting the tiny minority of the super rich on notice that we've had enough, we're not going to be exploited any more.  A cap on wealth -- ten million max!  How would that work?

Verizon Strike and Beyond

program date: 
Mon, 09/05/2011

Speaking with Denise Morris, Mark Brenner of Director of Labor Notes talks a bit about what Labor Notes is and how it involves itself in the labor movement. They spend most of the interview talking about the relevance of 45,000 verizon workers going on strike. Mark explains how this strike and what it was about underscores what is so wrong with our economy today: when corporate profits break records and shareholders receive big bonus dividends, workers are told "there isn't enough". Mark points out why unions can't remain islands in seas of union-hostility and competition from non-union companies.
