Today on Your Call: Is it time to revolt against corporate capitalism?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Chris Hedges about his latest book with Joe Sacco, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt.  Hedges says: “When everything becomes a commodity.. that you exploit until exhaustion or collapse, you eventually destroy human capital and you destroy the natural world and that’s what’s happening, that’s already happened to the working class.”  So is it time to revolt?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Jerry Mander, author of “The Capitalism Papers: Fatal Flaws of an Obsolete System."

And if so, what is the alternative to capitalism? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  How do you define capitalism? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Work with Marty Nemko

Barbara Nemko and I read scenes from famous plays that addressed work issues: Death of a Salesman, Prisoner of Second Avenue, Pygmalion. That led to a discussion of the nearly unprecedented plight of today's job seekers. An Associated Press analysis reported on April 22, 2012 found that HALF of new college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. Here's the link: http://www.theledger.com/article/20120422/NEWS/120429784/1410?p=1&tc=pg. I also did three-minute Workovers on callers.
