Talking Socialism

Past Episodes

Episode 38 -- Life & Taxes: The Political Economy of Taxes
Recorded April 12, 2014. No matter what we say we value or desire, what we tax, who we tax, and how we spend those taxes provide a measure true beyond any rhetoric. Bill Barclay, Chicago DSA co-chair and member of the Chicago Political Economy Group, gives an overview of U.S. taxes and the balance of power between the classes. Peg Strobel does the interview.

    Bernie Sanders Petition:

    I urge democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders to commit to running for President of the United States. As a lifelong champion of the public programs and democratic rights which empower working class people, Senator Sanders is in a position to help expand both the progressive movement and the democratic socialist voice within that movement.
