– Henry S. James, economist and senior fellow at Columbia University's Center for Sustainable International Investment, on the Greek people's overwhelming rejection of continuing EU-mandated austerity measures

Greeks Say No to More EU Austerity, Yes to Dignity

MP3 Interview with James S. Henry, senior fellow at Columbia University's Center for Sustainable International Investment, conducted by Scott Harris

greece

In the face of imminent default on its $320 billion debt and enormous pressure to reach an agreement with its European Union creditors, the Greek people overwhelmingly rejected the imposition of new austerity measures in a historic July 5 referendum.

Former U.S. Diplomat Celebrates Normalization of U.S.-Cuba Relations

MP3 Interview with Wayne Smith, former U.S. State Department diplomat, conducted by Scott Harris

cuba

Last December, President Obama announced his administration's historic decision to restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba's communist government. The breakthrough, negotiated with the help of Pope Francis over 18 months, ended the Cold War in the Caribbean 23 years after the fall of the Soviet Union. For decades, Washington's hardline policy toward Cuba had been rejected by the entire Latin America continent and the world. In October 2014, the United Nations General Assembly voted for the 23rd year in a row to condemn America's economic embargo against Cuba, with only Israel voting with the U.S.  Story continues
