It's no secret that hundreds of companies have been slashing pensions and health coverage earned by millions of retirees.

Fighting a Tar Sands Company's Claims to Private Land

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Julia Trigg Crawford, a Texas landowner and farmer who isn’t letting the foreign tar sands company claim eminent domain rights to her land without putting up a fight. Two weeks ago Ms. Crawford launched a Change.org petition to protect her land from tar sands money and tar sands risks.

With support from activists on both sides of the aisle, Ms. Crawford is hopeful that the Texas farmer can claim victory over the multi-billion dollar tar sands company which is trying to build a pipeline to transport a highly toxic hydrocarbon (called “tar sands”) from Alberta, Canada to Texas to refine and then export to foreign countries.

Economics Professor Richard Wolff discusses The Tax Code: Class Warfare

Richard Wolff: The Tax Code: Class Warfare (interview)

People dread taxes. The tax code is a labyrinth few citizens dare to enter save for the rich and powerful who hire lawyers and accountants to figure out ways to game the system. One corporation paid $26,000 a year to maintain a post office box in Bermuda as its legal HQs. That little trick saved them $40 million in corporate taxes. Not bad. Taxes on the wealthy used to be high. During the Eisenhower years in the 1950s, a fairly conservative period which saw tremendous economic growth, the tax rate for the haves was 91%. Today it’s a third of that and few actual pay that much. In true Orwellian fashion if you raise these issues you are accused of class warfare. There is class warfare all right.
