Radical Economics 101 (on hiatus)

with Suresh Naidu and Maliha Safri


In collaboration with the OWS Alternative Banking Working Group.Suresh Naidu and Maliha Safri from the Center for Popular Economics answer your questions about the economy. We discuss inequality in the US and around the world, who are the 1% and what does it take to get there, what is the relationship between the banks and the Federal reserve, how the financial crisis got going, what’s happening in Europe and “Why can’t I find a good job?”. We also talk about alternatives, from coops and credit unions to open source to what a democratic economy looks like.

    When elites are held in check, typically by effective legal mechanisms, everyone else in society does much better and sustained economic growth becomes possible. But powerful people – kings, barons, industrialists, bankers – work long and hard to relax the constraints on their actions. And when they succeed, the effects are not just redistribution toward themselves but also an undermining of economic growth and often a tearing at the fabric of society.

    Please sign the petition to the U.S. Senate Banking and House Financial Services Committee asking for improved oversight of federal banking and market regulators that have proven ineffective at not only detecting inappropriate behavior in the capital markets, but also preventing such behavior from hindering job creation and economic growth.
