David McNally on Global Slump: The Economics and Politics of Crisis and Resistance

Host Jay Thiemeyer speaks with David McNally about his book Global Slump, which analyzes the global financial meltdown as the first systemic crisis of the neoliberal stage of capitalism. McNally argues that – far from having ended – the crisis has ushered in a whole period of worldwide economic and political turbulence. In developing an account of the crisis as rooted in fundamental features of capitalism, Global Slump challenges the view that its source lies in financial deregulation.

So Rich, So Poor - Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America

More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 07/16/2012

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Peter Edelman, author of the new book So Rich, So Poor: Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America. The income-level disparity in this country is now wider than at any point since the Great Depression. How can some be so rich, while others are so poor? According to Edelman, we have taken important positive steps without which 25 to 30 million more people would be poor, but poverty fluctuates with the business cycle. The structure of today’s economy has stultified wage growth for half of America’s workers—with even worse results at the bottom and for people of color—while bestowing billions on those at the top.
