The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/23/11

Air date: 
Tue, 08/23/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
The current austerity fetish was never a good idea, and now we know it's bad politics, too.

The austerity kick in Washington is exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time. At a time of enormous economic duress, the government is tying its own hands, robbing itself of its most effective tool in periods of high unemployment and low demand -- spending. Abandoning Keynsian economics has always carried a high human cost -- and now we know it's bad politics, too.

With Joe on hiatus, Abe surveys the economic, social and political wreckage of the new age of austerity.

Chris Hedges - Death of the Liberal Class (lecture)

Chris Hedges - Death of the Liberal Class (lecture)

The gradual corruption and demise of the liberal class has occurred without much comment. For decades it was a modest curb against the worst excesses of power. Once the pillars of this class, the Democratic Party, the unions, and the liberal church, collapsed, the poor, the working class, and even the middle class no longer had a defender, thus creating a vacuum that is increasingly filled by opportunists and charlatans. The electoral process, flooded with money, is heavily influenced by corporations. The Supreme Court votes for the powerful.
