"More people are realizing that the rules are rigged, and that social mobility is declining. That people are working extremely hard, but they're stuck in first gear or they're slipping backwards. I think that's people's real life experience."

– Chuck Collins, author and director of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Institute for Policy Studies – commenting on why economic inequality has emerged as an important issue in this year's presidential election campaign

Inequality a Major Issue in U.S. Presidential Election Campaign, First Time in Decades

MP3 Interview with Chuck Collins, author and director of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris

inequality

Thanks in part to the economic agenda of Vermont's Sen. Bernie Sanders during his unsuccessful Democratic party primary campaign, and the Occupy Wall Street movement that emerged in 2011, the issue of income and wealth inequality has become a topic of serious debate in this year's presidential election campaign. Workers fighting for a rise in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour across the U.S. has also highlighted growing frustration and anger about the growing gap between the nation's rich and poor.  Story continues

U.S. Legislators Question Integrity of Brazil's Impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff

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

As Brazil prepares for the opening of the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, U.S. corporate media has focused much of its attention on the threat posed by the mosquito-transmitted Zika virus – and the health hazards athletes will be exposed to from untreated sewage flowing into waterways where sailing and swimming competitions will be held. But most Brazilians are focused on their nation’s political crisis, where president Dilma Rousseff, who was suspended from office in May, will soon be put on trial in the Senate on charges of breaking budgetary rules. If convicted, she will be removed from office.  Story continues

Environmental Groups Call for Halt to New England Natural Gas Energy Conversion

MP3 Interview with Claire Miller, lead community organizer with Toxics Action Center, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

A new report that evaluated several recent research papers shows definitively that natural gas is not a bridge to a clean energy future. The report was released by Toxics Action Center, the Frontier Group, Environment America, and more than a dozen community groups across New England at a press conference held in Bridgeport, Connecticut in late July. Bridgeport is the current site of Connecticut's last remaining coal-fired power plant, which is slated to be converted to use as an natural gas energy source.  Story continues
