Is Capitalism on the Ropes?

Interview with Michael D. Yates and Fred Magdoff

By Mike Whitney

Corporate America began to wage what turned out to be a one-sided war against working people in the mid-to late-1970s, when it became apparent that the post-World War Two "Golden Age" of U.S. capitalism was over.

Lieberman Twists the Knife

By Robert Scheer

Is there a more hypocritical figure in American politics than Joe Lieberman? The Connecticut senator declared Tuesday that he would support a filibuster of any health care reform bill that has a public option-even the version with the "trigger" compromise accepted by Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe-because it might cost money.

TARP on Steroids

David Sirota, Truthout: "I recall that September day like it was yesterday - the explosion so stunning, so memorable. It wasn't 9/11/01, it was 9/29/08 - a moment when a rare blast of populist democracy briefly singed the economic terrorists who hold the Capitol hostage. It had been a dark and stormy month of financial collapse, culminating in an attempted power grab. Pushed by his fellow Wall Street Ponzi schemers, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson - a former Goldman Sachs CEO - was threatening Armageddon unless Congress ratified his pamphlet-sized decree for a no-strings-attached bank bailout. The straightforward proposal, backed by President George W. Bush and President-to-be Barack Obama, would have turned Paulson into King Henry - a despot allowed to autonomously dole out $700 billion to any of his business cronies."

Little Joe

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "Senator Joe Lieberman managed to shoehorn himself into the center of the national debate over health care reform last week with his announcement that he would filibuster any health care legislation that contained any kind of a so-called 'public option.' Lieberman, the erstwhile Democrat turned Independent from Connecticut, went on 'Face the Nation' on Sunday to reassert his opposition in no uncertain terms."
