Grumpy, grumpy Wall Street gets its bonuses, a leading economics forecaster sees doom on the horizon, and Elizabeth Warren's Citigroup speech fulfills a DisCon prophesy -- so we go back in time to make sure you know we told you so.
We start with a wrap up of the 2014 midterm elections telling the saga of Andrew Cuomo and the Working Families Party, checking in with our favorite weird North Carolina Congressional district, and winding up with Elizabeth Warren, Jim Himes, and the future of Wall Street and the Democratic Party. Then, we reflect on the recent passing of the anniversaries of the Russian Revolution and fall of the Berlin Wall. Lastly, we speak to David Dayen (@ddayen) about Loretta Sanchez, President Obama's nominee for Attorney General, and one of DisCon's favorite topics, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
On today's episode, Jesse and Alexis play "A-D-H-DisCon," a lightening round about everything from business-class travel to flag burning. Then, Alexis interviews Eugene Puryear, a socialist running for the DC City Council.
