|⇦|| Episode #69 - The Mechanisms of Inequality
(Privatization, Speculation and the Attack on Democracy)
|⌚ Sat 30 June 2001 ☻Noam Chomsky, Smithy|
Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we focus on the mechanisms and institutions that are consolidating wealth in fewer and fewer hands, and how these are at the same time working to circumscribe and roll back democratic rights and processes. First, a talk given in Norton, Massachusetts last May by Noam Chomsky, one of his best to date. Following that, our second edition of The Wizards of Money, with an analysis of how global financial institutions work to socialize the risks and privatize the profits by gambling with taxpayers' money.
Thanks to Wizards of Money
