6/28 Mark Blyth: Brexit & the Global Failure of the Elite

June 28, 2016

Mark Blyth of the Watson Institute at Brown University explains why the Brexit is the chickens coming home to roost on austerity and inequality. How Brexit and Donald Trump show the failure of austerity, Right Wing politics and Neoliberalism. Why the public does not and should not distrust the elite. Why the Euro is awful and the EU is good and why the UK had the best of both worlds. What happened to the Greek economy and the stupidity of Eurozone economics. The failure of UK’s political class. Is the UK doomed? The politics of Europe. Where is the positive agenda. What’s disturbing about the Hillary Clinton candidacy and is there a positive agenda for the future?

On The Fun Half: Alex Jones freaks out at Bill O’Reilly. Christian crazy compares marriage equality to terrorism. Sam debates a Libertarian and your calls and IMs.
