Democratic Socialists: Eliminate Private Ownership and Nationalize Healthcare09/08/2018
Capitalism is dangerous and makes people suffer according to The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) who say they are out to upset the status quo. National DSA Director Maria Svart sat down with FOX Business Correspondent Adam Shapiro to explain the DSA's short and long-term goals, which some people will find troubling but others embrace. The D-S-A says it has 48,000 members. Their core principle rejects an international economic order sustained by private profit. Asked to explain what that means Svart said, "In the long term we want a society where workers control things." When asked if that meant eliminating private ownership of business Svart responded, "If that's what the voters wanted eventually I think you are talking about a utopian vision which is certainly our vision in the long term but it's not something I anticipate happening anytime soon." Svart lays bare the ultimate goals of the Democratic Socialists such as limiting the ownership of private property, nationalizing he
America’s Retirement Crisis: Public Pensions20/12/2016
America's public pensions are in big trouble, facing a shortfall of $5.6 trillion . The enormous pension debt figure is growing larger because public pensions overestimate their expected returns on investments, and fail to collect necessary funds from the cities, towns and states that employ civil servants. Joe Nation, a project director at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, is on the front lines of the nation's retirement crisis. His home state, California, has the largest public pension system in the country, The California Public Employees Retirement System or CalPERS. CalPERS, with $299 billion in assets, is underfunded by $164 billion, and the debt is going to grow larger. In this episode of Talkenomics, Nation explains why California is just one of many states and cities with apending public pension crises that will test taxpayers and retirees. Further reading: Adam Shapiro's report on CalPERS cutting benefits for the first time.
How Commoners And The Conquered Viewed Ancient Rome – With Professor Mary Beard28/09/2016
Ancient Rome continues to captivate and capture the attention of people worldwide 1600 years after Alaric and the Visigoths sacked the empire's western capitol. But ancient Rome lives in our modern legal systems, languages, literature and politics. Mary Beard, a professor of classics at the University of Cambridge is considered one of the world's preeminent scholars on the Roman Republic and Empire and she's our guest on Talkenomics. Her latest book, SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome, Professor Beard reveals the secrets of Rome's success based on its own culture, history and cultural myths. She approaches that history from the viewpoint of the people often overlooked by historians; average Roman citizens and conquered peoples drawing on writings which survive from the historic period. Modern readers can understand the ancient Roman citizens' financial problems caused by the debasement of money and political strife created by politicians who borrowed huge amounts of money in a winner takes all attempt to be elec

UCLA Campus Outrage: When being neutral is wrong14/09/2016
The social justice college campus lynch mob strikes again at UCLA. Milan Chatterjee was a law student and president of the Graduate Student Association when he was accused of violating a policy at UCLA called "viewpoint neutrality." Chatterjee says his offense was remaining neutral. That's right, in the upside down world of alleged campus tolerance and so called social justice Chatterjee says he was accused of refusing to take sides in a politically charged matter, and a campus investigation found him guilty of violating "viewpoint neutrality." In this episode of TALKENOMICS Chatterjee says the UCLA administration sacrificed him to the mob by denying him legal representation during what he calls kangaroo court proceedings. But, a confidential report from the investigators which university staff posted on the internet concluded Chatterjee had violated the "viewpoint neutrality" policy because there was no requirement for him to remain neutral. Chatterjee says students opposed to his neutral position slan

The Republicans and Democrats held their conventions and the country marches toward the presidential election.

Don’t Call them Liberals!19/06/2016
Liberals on college campuses demand tolerance and equality, but are they actually guilty of being intolerant and bigoted against anyone they deem different? Kim Holmes says yes. His new book The Closing of the Liberal Mind is shaking up the political scene and exposing the flaws of modern liberal progressives. Holmes writes, "There is no respect for the liberty principle as traditionally understood by classic liberals, because the postmodern impulse is not liberal at all but radically egalitarian." On this episode of Talkenomics, Holmes, a former US Assistant Secretary of State, explains how postmodern leftists defeated classic liberals in an attempt to radically change society and undermine free market capitalism. He says, "There are few liberal principles more enduring historically than the distrust of centralized power. Clearly the postmodern left has no such qualms." Anyone who values liberty will find Holmes an invaluable resource of facts in the war against liberal totalitarianism, "Liberals have got a
