BP aims to raise $9bn from sale of assets to China

Looks like BP are starting to sell off parts of the company. See this I think is a bit of a concern. If BP becomes controlled by the Chinese oil company (which is government owned), I wonder how easy it will be for the US government to enforce payment for cleanup.

Afterall, what if the Chinese turn around and say we will just take it out of the trillions of debt of yours we already own...

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
