Two critical views of the American economic system--one trivial, one profound. First, product marketing run amok. KD discusses the 40 different varieties of Colgate toothpaste at the supermarket And he explains why spray cooking oil--which is 99% fat--is sold as "fat-free spray oil."

Then NOAM CHOMSKY discusses Big Business's expensive campaign to accelerate global warming regardless of its threat to all life on the planet. This recent talk is titled, "Wrecking Nature for Short-Term Profit."
Previously broadcast, as NWN #275, in June 2013.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "spreading chestnut tree") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Of particular interest: Chomsky explains that the Magna Carta had TWO sections. The section establishing political liberties (the Charter of Liberties--the part we've heard about) has been largely scrapped by the Bush II and Obama administrations. The section establishing the people's rights to the natural resources they needed to live (the Charter of Forests) was scrapped a few centuries back, in the early days of capitalism.

This installment is available (as NWN #275)--in MP3 and other formats--also on The Internet Archive (
