REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS

Host Michelle Schroeder-Fletcher speaks with Joni Seager and Cynthia Enloe about their book, REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS, which draws back the curtain on our complex nation to reveal the myriad realities of the American experience-from our changing demographics to patterns of home ownership to the kinds of food we eat. The atlas upends many long-held myths and shows us who we are today.

Misguided Measures

It's been 15 years since Oregon voters passed Measure 11, setting mandatory sentences in criminal cases. Just as a new Governor's Commission on Public Safety begins examining prison costs and their causes, a new report by the Partnership for Safety and Justice (PSJ) and the Campaign for Youth Justice says Measure 11 has meant more Oregon youths being charged as adults.

Associate Director and co-author of the report, as well as Matt (last name omitted). Matt spent seven and a half years in the Oregon Youth Authority. He shares some of his experiences with Measure 11 and his time at the McLaren youth facility in Woodburn.

A Market Abolitionist Argues for Cap-&-Trade

program date: 
Mon, 07/25/2011

Bill and Robin Hahnel start by talking about why he opposes markets when central to economic systems, advocating participatory economic planning, even in the case of so-called market-socialism, which Bill succinctly c competetively extracting profits to work. Robin points out that markets reward people for working against one another (he calls it anti-solidaristic behavior). However, Robin thinks there's a case to be made for the market approach to addressing global warming known as "cap-and-trade" - capping carbon emissions and then trading the derivatives. One key element is revising the Kyoto protocols to put carbon-emission caps on ALL countries.
