New World Notes: #690 -- Bitter Lake - Part 3 (R), Segment 1

2 months 1 week ago
Adam Curtis's lively documentary, adapted to radio by KD. This interesting and entertaining look at recent history shows the folly of even trying to reform--let alone conquer--Afghanistan. Part 3 shows the corruption, conflicts, complexity, warlordism, and ever-shifting local alliances of Afghan society today. And it shows the naivete and ignorance of the English and American occupying forces--and of the politicians who dispatched them. (Continued in "Credits," below:)

Taylor Report: A Strike at Nestle, Segment 1

2 months 1 week ago
Tony Leah, Political Action Committee Chair for UNIFOR Local 222 in Oshawa, talks about the ongoing strike at Nestle factory in Toronto. Nestle, a multinational giant, turned a profit last year of $19 billion - equal to $70,000 from each of their workers. The big issue is a two-tier system where many workers are confined to a precarious casual status. These workers earn $7 to $10-per-hour less than the rest, and have no pensions, no guaranteed hours, and inferior benefits. It's a divisive issue and violates the central union principle of solidarity. Why has this attack on workers' rights been spreading like a cancer? Leah speculates that those union leaders who have made their peace with the capitalist system have found common ground with employers at the expense of their own members. Leah notes that, in Quebec, there are labour laws against two-tier wages and pensions, and the use of strikebreakers is illegal. During the red scare of the 1950s, socialist and communist union leaders were purged and unions which refused to purge such leaders were expelled and raided. The long-term result has been a weaker and less-effective labour movement.

2 Bulls in a China Shop: 5/22/21 2 Bulls Radio, Segment 2

2 months 1 week ago
In this week's episode, Dan and Kyle are shocked to learn that the SEC has actually charged someone for shady trading practices. We also discuss the big crypto selloff along with the Mormon church making large gains in the GME events last January. For investing, we take a closer look at the AT&T planned spinoff/merger of Time Warner and Discovery and what a successful test flight for Virgin Galactic should lead to when the market opens next. In Options, Dan nearly goes all in on AMC and Kyle repeats a frequent mistake. For the bet, Dan comes up with a clever loophole, but will Kyle agree?
