California Gets It Rolling

 

California has passed breakthrough legislation that sanctions municipal public banks to serve as public administration entities, a development with wide repercussions across the country.  We talk with a couple of the citizen leaders, Marc Armstrong and Susan Harman, who were pivotal drivers of the effort, and what they think it means for the movement. Then Ellen speaks with an author and former US Treasury economist, Richard C. Cook, about why the extractive domination of private banks over the totality of civic life must be taken down if we wish to have an economy that works for all.  Finally, we have another talk with Bank of North Dakota historian Mike Jacobs about why that bank has managed to avoid corruption and remain a robust example of why banks should be owned by the people.

The current face-offs between the United States and China over trade resurrect an issue that has wide-ranging ramifications in both countries. Is “free trade” really free? Is there such a thing as “fair trade?”  Our guest, Ian Fletcher, speaks with Ellen about his book “Free Trade Doesn’t Work.” We also visit with historian Mike Jacobs about how the Bank of North Dakota relates to the state’s oil industry, which is too often given credit for the bank’s success.
