Economy in Crisis: Who Pays? Who Profits?

A conversation with
Jack Rasmus
Author of The War at Home: The Corporate Offensive from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush
and
Max Bollock
Businessman and fair trade activist; member, PPJC Board of Directors

What’s behind the economic downturn? Why does the White House insist that helping homeowners who are on the verge of foreclosure constitutes unwarranted "government intervention" but then turn around and guarantee $30 billion to Wall Street powerhouse Bear Stearns? And just who is responsible for all those bad mortgages anyway?

What about all the foreign debt that burdens the U.S. economy? What roles have deregulation and globalization played in the current crisis? And what about the cost of the Iraq War?

As always, you are an important part of the conversation. Come with your questions and comments and be a part of the live studio audience. Watching from home or on the internet? Phone in with your questions: (650) 856-1491.

Free and open to the public; sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center. The program will be broadcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27 and webcast at www.communitymediacenter.net, and rebroadcast throughout April as part of the ongoing Other Voices television series produced by PPJC.
