Song clip "Billonaires" by Dana Pearson
Available as 2 29 min segments below, for stations needing time for ID or announcements. Each of these segments could be played as a separate half hour program.

Full speeches available from our web site ecoshock.org

Although some of these speeches are about Canada, most examples of billionaires, and studies of what people really want, are American. You'll hear plenty about Wall Street, the greedy Hedge Funders, and why Bill Gates doesn't deserve his exaggerated fortune.

It's the same disease of atrophied Capitalism all over the world.

Our financial system has distorted a former Democracy into a Plutocracy. And the economy does WORSE when all the money goes to the top. Examples of better times, and better places, with ideas of what we can do.

Professor Neil Brooks has taught tax law at the University of Toronto, Osgoode Hall, for 35 years.

Linda McQuaig is a well-known business writer, and author of best-selling books.
