Professor of Economics Richard Wolff on Capitalism Hits the Fan

Richard Wolff – Capitalism Hits the Fan (lecture)

Like that well known substance, Capitalism has hit the fan. The statistics are numbing and do not convey the suffering and trauma citizens are enduring. Gone up in smoke are their savings, pensions, homes and jobs. Poverty is at record levels. For too many, dreams and hopes are shattered. And like the Howard Beale character in the movie “Network,” people are yelling, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.” Occupy Wall Street has gone global. People are in the streets pushing back and saying, Enough. “We are the 99%.” There is widespread recognition that the economic crash is not just the result of greed and arrogance and lax regulation.

Interview; William Arkin author; Obama’s Sword; The JOSC, What Role Does It Play?

Which US military force carried out the infamous night raids in Afghanistan?

You might guess the CIA but you’d be wrong. It is the JSOC, the President's personal sword. Join me, Linda Olson-Osterlund, and my returning guest William Arkin, author of Top Secret America:. The Rise of the New American Security State. He’ll shine a light on this shadowy organization playing a pivotal role internationally.

Social change activist and author David Korten speaks on "Wall Street or the Common Good"

David Korten - Wall Street or the Common Good (lecture)

The Occupy Wall Street movement is growing. Mumia Abu-Jamal from his jail cell writes: “In Lower Manhattan's Zucotti Park, renamed 'Liberty Square' by the demonstrators, the cast of thousands swell in rebellion against the betrayals by the banks, Wall Street's relentless greed, the plague of joblessness and the craven servility of the political class, both Republicans and Democrats, to their moneyed masters. In short, the central focus of their protest is capitalism, greed writ large. Begun mostly by unemployed urban youth, it has drawn the presence and support of public workers, students, teachers and a considerable number of gray hairs.
