AND THE BAND PLAYED ON...

As the Fed loans hundreds of billions of dollars to major US corporations, has the performance of the stock market largely decoupled from the American economy? Economist Richard Wolff shares his views with Thom. Would it have been better to have given the same money to the people to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars each, or will trickle-down economics work this time? Or can we find leaders who are capable of admitting to our economic failures and correcting them?Meanwhile, could it be for the sake of their financial interests that the billionaires are using their propaganda groups like so-called "Freedom Works" to push people to protest public health lockdowns? And would the Michigan police have allowed a crowd of black people with guns to storm the statehouse? (hint: no)Plus- Pinning the numbers to Trump... When did it become almost impossible to opt-out of the internet?.. How is Trump coercing the slaughterhouse workers back to the kill floor?.. What are the Swedes up to?.. Plus!- astrology, aliens, and a virus creation conspiracy...
