Brian Becker at People's Tribunal: "End the Scourge of Capitalism and Imperialism!"
Today's episode is a recording of Brian Becker's speech  during the launch of the International People’s Tribunal on U.S.  Imperialism: Sanctions, Blockades, and Economic Coercive Measures. This  event was held at The People's Forum in New York City on January 28, and  featured a wide range of anti-war leaders and experts on international  law. Brian discusses the urgent need to build the anti-war movement, and  the importance of rejecting the demonization of targeted countries and  putting the fight against sanctions at the forefront. Brian makes the  case that U.S. empire is rooted in the insatiable search of capitalists  for profits.

Recession, inequality and capitalism: A "soft landing" for who?
Recession, inequality and capitalism: A "soft landing" for who?
On  today's episode Walter Smolarek and Prof. Richard Wolff discuss the  state of the U.S. economy. With the Federal Reserve poised to slow down  its rate hikes at least temporarily, is it true that the economy is  headed for a so-called soft  landing? How healthy or sick is US capitalism? Are mainstream  economists missing the big picture? Professor Richard Wolff is an author & co-founder of the organization Democracy at Work. You can find his work at rdwolff.com.
