3/18 Matt Stoller: The Lost History of Free Trade

March 18, 2014

Writer Matt Stoller explains origins of free trade deals and why they are not going away, why modern free trade had its start in the 1930s, the utopian desire for a one world government, who is George Ball and why he matters the roots of a common market and governance, the evolving elite view of the middle class, why we have allowed America’s industrial base to erode, the myth of frictionless world of capital, why the threat to America is our loss of manufacturing not in debt, how trade agreements impact sovereignty and what we need to learn from Alexander Hamilton.

On The Fun Half: CNN asks if God is involved in the Malaysia flight mystery, new discoveries on the Big Bang, the climate crisis accelerates, demented rich person  Ken Langone compares fighting inequality to Nazism, why do crazy wealthy people keep talking about Nazism, was JFK trying to halt the Cold War? and your IMs.
