Isn’t It Time to Declare Neoliberalism Dead?

Before the IMF and World Bank started aggressively pushing austerity economics - Middle Eastern economies and global economies were in pretty good shape. The governments in that part of the world were pretty socialist - the government was the employer of last resort - and provided a reasonable social safety net. There were high income taxes on the wealthy elite - and protective trade and domestic ownership policies in place that protected jobs and grew economies. But the embrace by these formerly socialist governments over the past decade or so of Reaganomics and Thatchernomics - called "neoliberalism" - have changed all of that. Today - across the Middle East we find ravished economies with soaring inequality and high unemployment - all fuel for terrorist groups. Not only has Reaganomics destroyed America’s economy - it’s destroyed global economies too - AND it’s helping to fuel terrorism. So - isn't time to declare it dead - and encourage economies around the world to adopt Keynesian economic policies that will create more economic opportunities for all?

Eco-Hip Hop Artist Xiuhtezcatl Raps "Be the Change"

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Earth Guardians, joins Thom Hartmann. President Obama spoke about the high stakes game we're playing with the planet in a speech at today's U.N. summit - saying that we cannot condemn our children to a future beyond repair. As corny as it sounds - children and young people really are the key to the fight against climate change. Which is what makes people like my next guest - activist and hip-hop artist Shoe-Tez-Caht Martinez - so inspiring. Although he's just 14 years old - Shoe-Tez-Caht has already given a Ted Talk and started an organization that brings young people together to fight for a greener planet. He also spoke at today's U.N.
