Craig Barnes: Start Over

| 0 Comments

Commentary by Craig Barnes:

 

On a Monday in early August, 2011, AIG (American International Group) filed claims in federal court against Bank of America alleging losses of $10 billion. The insurance giant claimed that the bank had intentionally disguised the risks of products to be insured. At the same time, Bank of America was already being sued for $82 billion in a multitude of other suits.  According to The New York Times, JP Morgan was also being sued for almost $40 billion, Wells Fargo was being sued for $35 billion, Citigroup for over $2 billion.  All were alleged to have marketed securities as solid investments when at the time of the sale they knew that these representations were untrue. In legal jargon, when a person makes a deal based upon a fact that he knows to be false and intentionally disguises the falsehood, that is fraud.  The giants of American capitalism were therefore this August in a hugely costly family quarrel, suing one another for throat-choking amounts of fraud.

Heather Gerken, Skelley Wright professor of constitutional law at Yale University, and who has appeared on PBS, testified to congress, written numerous articles, etc., here discusses campaign finance reform and the recent Supreme Court decision that strikes down an Arizona law that attempted to level the playing field in elections by public financing for candidates. She helps us understand the internal workings of doctrines of campaign contributions and independent expenditures and then leads on to Citizen’s United and a discussion of the Roberts Court’s unwillingness to regulate money in politics.

Craig Barnes: Andy Schmookler

Andy Schmookler, author of The Parable of the Tribes and other examinations of American political thought, speculates on the nature of evil, or, to put it differently, the great force for lying, torture, and self interest that has taken possession of American politics. Andy is a candidate for Congress in the 6th District of Virginia and hopes to reawaken a conversation about politics, virtue, and the great spirit that can head us toward good or evil.

Craig Barnes: Terry O'Neill

| 0 Comments

Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, discusses the package of legislation that has passed the US House of Representatives during the first session of Congress this year.  From making abortions more expensive, or by slashing programs that disproportionately employ or benefit women such as Pell Grants, Headstart,  or Food Stamps, or pre-natal care, this Congress has systematically discriminated against women.  Why or how?  Because "we are invisible," says O'Neill.
