As George HW Bush lies in state, from Nicaragua to North Dakota, has Reaganism come home to roost in the form of massive income inequality? As life expectancy grows shorter in America after 37 years of Reagonomics, the middle class has been devastated for many, but will they figure out they've been had? America is becoming a nation of cartels, says Professor Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Clinton, and prolific author. Thom asks what we can do about it? Thom further considers the question of massive income inequality, and what effect it will have on the economy when demand is limited by the depressed incomes of ordinary working people. Why hasn't the 'horse and sparrow theory' saved us after 37 years? Listeners respond. Former Republican Congressman Chris Shays engages with Thom on the disaster that is Donald Trump, but with a warning. And he and Thom festively kick back and forth questions surrounding income inequality. And listeners get in the game too. Former Republican Congressman Bob Ney helps Thom put Progressive efforts in Congress in the context of Congresses past. Rich in Washington state wants to know if Republicans will ever admit the deadly serious consequences we live with today that stem from Reaganism.
