From the newsletter by Bill Moyers Journal:
"The public's had it with the NAFTA model. It's meant real damage to people: unsafe food, downward pressure on wages, lost jobs."
- Lori Wallach This week on Bill Moyers Journal (KCET.org)
With U.S. mortgages entering foreclosure at a record pace, the crisis has far reaching implications, from the financial markets to the financial health of ordinary Americans. For the latest, Bill Moyers interviews assistant business and financial editor at The New York Times Gretchen Morgenson, who has been covering the story.
Lori Wallach, Director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, on the secret trade deal negotiated by leaders of the Democratic Party and the White House, and its implications for labor unions, consumer groups and the environment.
Then, from Barry Goldwater's deputy press secretary to George H. W. Bush's speechwriter, Victor Gold has spent four-decades as a Republican-party insider. Gold speaks candidly with Bill Moyers about how the GOP has lost its way, the subject of his new book, Invasion of the Party Snatchers: How the Holy-Rollers and the Neo-Cons Destroyed the GOP.
