Take a Spring Break and listen to Alexis and Jesse talk about Sanders, Clinton, and Trump's various approaches to funding their campaigns, learn what SIFI and FSOC stand for and what they have to do with Scalia, and get the latest on the Corinthian students' fight for debt relief.
Alexis and Jesse are back! First, they go to the movies and discuss The Big Short, then check in on the struggle to obtain justice for victims of for-profit college fraudsters, and lastly pay tribute to the late scholar and writer Ellen Meiksins Wood.
Why concepts like "the precariat" and "human capital" are trash, why student loan "servicer" Navient is trash, and why Nathan Schneider (@nathanairplane) believes that block-chain/cryptocurrency technology, though it has been mostly trash so far, might be the farthest thing from trash in the future.
Enjoy some links to Nathan's work:
Alexis being too cool for school, Jesse hosts a solo show, first reviewing the new Progressive police policy unveiled by The Roosevelt Institute and Mayor Bill de Blasio, and then interviews Truthout's Editor-in-Chief Maya Schenwar (@MayaSchenwar) about monetary bail and its abolition, and then Valance Co. President Warren Mosler (@wbmosler) about "currency manipulation."
