Too Broke for Bankruptcy

It’s a grim irony that only the moneyed can afford the protections of bankruptcy. Even as major companies declare bankruptcy to get relieved of overwhelming debt, expensive pension obligations and union contracts under bankruptcy protection, financially strapped individuals often can’t afford to apply for the same relief.  Enter Upsolve, a free online app designed to help people complete the challenging and often expensive process of claiming bankruptcy protection. Our guest, Rohan Pavuluri Upsolve’s founder and CEO, discusses how their celebrated and highly successful app works.  Later, we continue a discussion with Dr. Robert Hockett about how this moment in Federal Reserve history needs to reclaim some of its original intent.

Recent decades of American politicians have sidestepped making serious national plans to invest in the country’s debilitated infrastructure. Now our country needs multiple-trillions to restore, improve and create a wide array of public infrastructure projects, from highways to high-speed broadband. A new national grassroots campaign called the National Infrastructure Bank Coalition proposes that we return to our historical routes for financing those projects by creating a public bank to do the job, at no cost to taxpayers!  Ellen speaks with economist Alphecca Muttardy of the NIB Coalition about how that bank would work, and later we talk with Dr. Robert Hockett about how the Federal Reserve could play an active role in making it happen.
