4/10 RJ Eskow: America the Next South Africa? & Shannyn Moore: Exxon Valdez 25 Years Later

April 10, 2014

RJ Eskow a Senior Fellow at Campaign For America’s Future, explains his history on Wall Street, why Wall Street reform hasn’t happened, President Obama’s connection to Wall Street, social networks and Wall Street power, the serious reforms that are needed, why the financial sector is afraid of extreme inequality, the one percent’s rage, how the discourse of opportunity distorts politics, why government always picks winners and losers, does America look like South Africa in the future, why Occupy Wall Street caught the liberal policy world by surprise and inside and outside politics.

Alaskan journalist Shannyn Moore explains Alaska’s victory over the pebble mine, the two things everyone in Alaska agrees on, the 25th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez, how Exxon fought against Alaska’s fisherman, Shell’s horrible safety and pollution records, how Senator Mark Begich is campaigning against the Koch Brothers, what guns mean in Alaska, why Begich is running a smart campaign and the Republicans running against him.
