Full Program



Part 1

We begin with an analysis of the recent report by the CBO, the Congressional Budget Office that finds the income of America’s top 1% more than tripled in the last few decades while middle class incomes grew by less than 40%. Harvard Economist Richard Parker, author of “The Myth of the Middle Class” joins us to explain how these latest figures confirm what a lot of Americans already knew, while validating the Occupy Wall Street Movement’s stark comparison of the 1% at the top versus the 99% at the bottom.

Part 2

Then we look into the rise and fall of a criminal website “Darkmarket”, the title of a new book by BBC investigative journalist Misha Glenny, “Darkmarket: Cyberthieves, Cybercops and You”.  The author of the bestseller “McMafia” that explored global multinational networks of organized crime, Misha Glenny turns his attention to this new frontier of crime and warfare that is essential reading for anyone who owns a computer.
