paul cienfuegosPaul Cienfuegos teaches that corporate rights are at the core of almost every environmental and social justice problem that we face. Corporate power grew immensely toward the end of the 19th century with the dismantling of legal restraints and the redefinition of corporations as "persons." As citizens, can we take back our power from these fictitious corporate "persons?"   Cienfuegos says, "Yes!"  And he tells of communities that are doing just that by going after illegitimate corporate authority and privilege.

 Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Fred Magdoff, co-author of "The Great Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences".

In the fall of 2008, the United States was plunged into a financial crisis more severe than any since the Great Depression. As banks collapsed and the state scrambled to organize one of the largest transfers of wealth in history, many — including economists and financial experts — were shocked by the speed at which events unfolded. In this new book, John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff offer a bold analysis of the financial meltdown, how it developed, and the implications for the future.

While President Obama called for sweeping new regulations on the financial sector today, he continues to move forward with free trade agreements begun under the Bush administration.
One of the trade agreements currently in process being considered by the US Congress is the US-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, although Obama retains ‘fast track’ power to push the trade agreement through at his will.
Larry Burns, the head of the Council on Hemispheric Affairs, told KBOO that he sees very little change between Bush and Obama in regards to Colombia and free trade agreements.
