    "How is the left going to do? I think they will come back. The other side doesn't have anything really coherent to offer ... the opposition is offering nothing. They have no economic program."

    – Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, on the future of left governments in Latin America, despite recent election defeats and serious economic downturns

Latin American Left Suffers Political, Economic Setbacks, But Remains a Potent Force

MP3 Interview with Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, conducted by Scott Harris

latinamerica

After decades of U.S. domination over Latin American politics and economic policy, popular progressive leaders and parties emerged in the late 1990s that moved the region into a new era of independence. The so-called pink tide that swept South American nations began when Hugo Chavez of Venezuela won his nation’s 1998 presidential election, followed by a succession of victories for the left in Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Uruguay, Paraguay, Honduras and Peru. Left parties in many of these nations launched new social programs that expanded education, job opportunities and improved housing, benefiting the poor majority. Washington, which had a long history of overt and covert military interventions in the region and overthrew dozens of governments had lost much of its power to influence policies and events in the hemisphere.  Story continues

Rising Levels of Methane Feed Menace of Climate Change

MP3 Interview with Robert Howarth, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

methane

In addition to carbon dioxide, methane is a critical global warming gas. In the short term, methane is many times more powerful than carbon dioxide in warming the planet’s atmosphere. Even so, the impact of methane is often given short shrift in discussions about climate change. The global climate change activist organization, 350.org, for example, takes its name from the concept that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere must be reduced to 350 ppm from the current 400 ppm in order to stabilize the climate.  Story continues

Colorado Voters Could Enact Nation's First Single-Payer Health Care System this November

MP3 Interview with Irene Aguilar, Democratic Colorado state senator and practicing physician, conducted by Scott Harris

health

As the Democratic presidential primary campaign between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders concludes, one of the defining issues that separated the two candidates was Sanders and his supporters' advocacy for establishing a single-payer, universal health care system in the United States. While the proposal, sometimes referred to as "Medicare for All," was promoted by Sanders as necessary to provide health insurance to the estimated 32 million still not covered by the Affordable Care Act. Clinton opposed the idea as too expensive for taxpayers and not politically viable.  Story continues
