Economic Issues

This week’s Project Censored show opens with economic issues, and wraps up with an interview with a VA whistleblower. Fifty years have passed since LBJ announced the War On Poverty. The first guest, Keith Kilty, describes the how poverty was reduced in the 1960s and 1970s, before the programs were cut back and the poverty rate rose again. Then economist Doug Orr of San Francisco City College looks at the stock market ” how relevant are the market’s gyrations to the real economy? Orr also explains frontrunning, a tactic used by market insiders to enrich themselves. The program concludes with a conversation about whistleblowing in the federal government, with Oliver Mitchell of the VA, and Marcel Reid, organizer of a whistleblowers’ summit. The National Whistleblower Summit takes place July 28-31 in Washington, DC (www.whistleblowersummit.com). Speakers: Keith Kilty, Professor Emeritus of Social Work, Ohio State; Doug Orr, Professor of Economics, San Francisco City College; Oliver Mitchell, Veterans Administration whistleblower; Marcel Reid, one of the organizers of the National Whistleblower Summit.
