Interview with Michael Hudson, editor, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, conducted by Scott Harris

taxhavens

While it is widely known that many of the world’s wealthiest individuals and large corporations have for many years taken advantage of so-called tax havens to avoid paying taxes in their home countries, the identities of many of those people hadn’t been exposed until a recent investigation. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists recently revealed that they had obtained 2.5 million files that uncovered the names of more than 120,000 offshore companies and trusts, detailing the activities of celebrities, the super rich, politicians and others who use secret bank accounts for the purpose of tax avoidance.  Story continues

Progressive Campaign Group Threatens Primary Challenges to Congressional Democrats Supporting President Obama’s Social Security Cuts

Interview with Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, conducted by Scott Harris

primary

The release of President Obama’s federal budget proposal last week included a reduction of Social Security benefits totaling an estimated $100 billion or more over 10 years through a change in the way cost-of-living adjustments are calculated. Many progressive groups around the country have loudly proclaimed their staunch opposition to the proposed change, called the Chained Consumer Price Index, or “Chained CPI.” The White House says the president only supports reductions in Social Security and proposed additional cuts to Medicare benefits if congressional Republicans accept closing tax loopholes that benefit the wealthiest Americans, and there are protections in place for the most vulnerable citizens.  Story continues

Mistrial in New Haven Police Assault Case Underscores Nation's Ongoing Racial Divide

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Diane Polan, defense attorney, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

mistrial

A very unusual event unfolded in Superior Court in New Haven, Conn., over the past couple of weeks. A man took his case to trial rather than plea bargain the charges against him, and on April 12 a judge declared a mistrial after the jury said they couldn't convict the defendant because the police in the case had also broken the law. Since 98 percent of court cases are settled by plea bargaining, with no trial, the case of Jewu Richardson stands out. The case resulted from a routine traffic stop in 2011, when Richardson, who is African American, fled the scene and led police on a chase across town. He was shot in the chest by one officer and almost killed. Police then charged him with assault on an officer, a charge carrying a penalty of 30 years in prison.  Story continues
