Hedrick Smith REBROADCAST

Today on Your Call: Rebroadcast--What will it take to shift power back to the people?

On today's Your Call we’ll rebroadcast a conversation we had with Pulitzer-prize winning, former New York Times journalist Hedrick Smith about his new book, "Who Stole the American Dream?" We’ll talk about what Smith uncovered in his research as he examined the last four decades of corporate and political power and how that led to “the dismantling of the American dream.” With politicians ignoring public opinion, and the middle class shrinking, where do we go from here? What does the “American Dream” mean to you? It’s Your Call with Matt Martin, and you.

Today on Your Call: What economic changes would you like to see?

On today’s Your Call, we'll have a conversation with veteran journalists Donald Barlett and James Steele, authors of The Betrayal of the American Dream. They argue that since the 1980s, the ruling elite, with the help of Republican and Democratic politicians, have sold their business-friendly reforms to the American people in the name of economic efficiency. Instead, the middle class has been systematically impoverished. Join us  at 10am PST or post your comment here. What will it take to achieve equity and prosperity for everyone? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
