Corporate profits and stock prices continue to go up, up, up. Yet unemployment remains disastrously high, layoffs are increasing, poverty and personal debt are increasing. How can this be? NOAM CHOMSKY, JIM HIGHTOWER, DAVE JOHNSON, The New York Times, and singer MIKE STOUT provide some answers. Hint: don't blame nature, the Internet, new technologies, or China. Changes in federal laws and regulations--which Big Business fought hard for--enabled and encouraged the current mess.
Chuck U. Rosina recorded the Chomsky segment in Boston on February 25, 2013. (Thanks again.)
