Full Program


Part 1

We begin with the leak of documents from the Obama Administration’s secret free trade negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact obtained by Lori Wallach, the Founder and Director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch. She joins us to discuss the explosive contents of this secret trade agreement under negotiation that are diametrically opposed to Obama’s and the Democrat’s 2008 campaign promises. Wallach

Part 2

Then we go to Prague, in the Czech Republic and speak with economist James Galbraith about the growing gloom in the Eurozone with Greece in default, and Spain,  after receiving a cash infusion, finding its borrowing costs have increased, and now Italy facing a hostile bond market and questions from its northern neighbors; all indicating that the Band-Aid approach to this on-going two year crisis is not working. Galbraith

Part 3

Then finally we look into an infographic report from the Center For American Progress indicating that the Latino vote is a “sleeping giant”, that, if awakened will determine the outcome of the 2012 election. The head of the team that produced it Angela Kelly, the Vice President for Immigration Policy and Advocacy at the Center For American Progress, joins us. Kelly
