    The Free Speech Zone - Sunday - August 19th - 7-8 pm / Host: DJ Big Brother / Then Stay Tuned for “Lives in the Balance” 8-9 PM
    August 17, 2012


    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night August 19th at 7 pm to hear a 2-part program. First up is a July 7th recording of Elizabeth Warren in conversation with Christopher Lydon of Radio Open Source at the JFK Library. Warren has been the cutting edge of the Democratic Party on the “money issues” since Barack Obama took office, often resisting and goading him. She can be seen on YouTube, berating Timothy Geithner back in 2009 for pampering Goldman Sachs in the AIG bailout, and explaining to Michael Moore why you can’t buy exploding toasters in the USA but exploding mortgages are okay.  The drift of her books, teaching and regulatory career is clear: public inestment empowered American life, while abusive private power, specially since the 1970s, has bankrupted the American dream. She could hardly have imagined the drum-beat of summer scandals - the Barclay’s bust, LIBOR rate gaming, JPMorgan-Chase’s disappearing billions, the torrent of unattributed campaign money - that might be taken to reinforce her point.  Second up, from a 2011 Law and Disorder show, is Economics Professor Richard Wolff on The Revenge of Trickle Down Economics: Differences between Democrats and Republicans. He says both are committed to a broken, corrupt system and that the US government plans to spend about 3.5 trillion dollars from the federal budget to shore up a dangerously slumped economy while collecting 2 trillion dollars in tax revenue - which will leave a deficit of 1.5 trillion. Meanwhile the Democrats and Republicans debate over spending cuts that are around 40 to 60 billion. Rick says the debate is inconsequential,  when the federal budget’s projected deficit of $1.5 trillion will carry an annual interest cost of $40-60 billion. We get an update on the budget, the current economic conditions in the United States and discuss possible alternatives. Richard D. Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus,  University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he taught from 1973 until 2008.

    “The people, unfortunately, are still very ignorant,
    and are kept in ignorance by the systematic efforts
    of all the governments, who consider this ignorance,
    not without good reason, as one of the essential
    conditions of their own power.”  ~ Mikhail Bakunin  1871
