Ellen BrownEllen Brown was on the Progressive Radio News Hour with Stephen Lendman on January 26, 2014, and here were some of the highlights:

– Her candidacy for Treasurer of California, where she intends to invest $75 billion of public funds in a public bank, instead of speculative Wall Street investments.
– The third annual Public Banking Institute conference to be held in Detroit in 2014
– Costa Rica’s banking system 80% publicly owned (Ed. They were ranked 53th most economically free out of 178 countries in the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom, ahead of Mexico and France).
– California governor Jerry Brown shocked at banks making 10 times the principal off of loans, regulated it down to four times the amount — still too high!
– The Bank of North Dakota the only publicly-owned deposit bank in the U.S. that serves the people
– Credit card companies making 2% off of purchases, and until recently, State laws prohibited retailers from charging a lower price for cash purchases.
– Her support for a new Bill of Rights to provide for housing, basic health care, etc. (This is one of the few points I disagree with her)

Stephen LendmanStephen Lendman only has two and a half hours of broadcast time a week on the Progressive Radio News Hour (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), and here are three of his recent Canadian guests:

Michael Mandel
“Mandel is a Professor of Law at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Toronto, Ontario. He teaches international criminal law, constitutional law, and legal politics.

He authored “How America Gets Away with Murder: Illegal Wars, Collateral Damage and Crimes Against Humanity.””

Denis Rancourt
“Rancourt is a distinguished tenured Professor of Physics, a recognized expert in his field, and an Environmental Science Researcher at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

Yet he was persecuted, unfairly fired, and barred from campus. Doing so constituted a gross violation of his academic freedom, tenure, stature, and support for human rights, civil liberties and equal justice.”

John McMurtry
“McMurtry is an internationally recognized moral and political philosopher who is an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and University Professor Emeritus at the University of Guelph, Ontario.

His volumes on Philosophy and World Problems for UNESCO are globally published, and his widely translated works include the influential books, “Unequal Freedoms,” “The Cancer Stage of Capitalism,” and “Value Wars.”

McMurtry is also an active public advocate for global justice, world peace, and international law.”
