Palley on Trade and America’s Middle Class

from Boom Bust

Hundreds of thousands of Brazilians have called for the ouster of President Dilma Rousseff and Chinese buyers are trying to secure Starwood hotels with a $12.8 billion dollar buyout offer; Ameera David weighs in. Then, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at how the refugee crisis impacted this weekend’s regional elections in Germany. Afterwards, RT’s Manuel Rapalo reports on the Department of Justice setting its eyes on WhatsApp.

After the break, Edward Harrison sits down with Thomas Palley – economist and author of “From Financial Crisis to Stagnation” – to talk about the economics and politics of trade. And in The Big Deal, Ameera and Edward discuss subprime auto loans.
