    In an episode devoted to looting of all kinds, we discuss the shady political economy of actual highway robbery being committed by... the nation's police officers. We look at Bill de Blasio's record and the power the Mayor's office has to grant or deny tax breaks to global financial companies. Finally, we talk to CEPR Senior Economist Eileen Appelbaum about her new book "Private Equity at Work: When Wall Street Manages Main Street"

    Special thanks for DisCon listener Dave for research support. Please check out his band Rocket Cathedral ( rocketcathedral.bandcamp.com ), whose song "Cheap Black Coffee" appears on the show, and support their Indiegogo ( bit.ly/rocketcathedral ).

    Summer's over, and everyone's nose is back to the grindstone: Central Bankers and the business press are busy being useless and pathetic in Jackson Hole, WY, and Alexis is hard at work on a conspiracy theory involving hackers, leakers, lobbyists, bankers and maybe even the Russian government. Kade Crockford (@onekade) of the ACLU of Massachusetts joins to talk surveillance, cybersecurity, and an evil zombie trade group.
