Debt that Lasts Forever: Can't Cash in on Credit

How can we go beyond diagnosing economic ills, and instead offer their solutions? This week, our guests respond to the dual crises of debt and corporate growth and how we might find a way out. Joining us are Ivan Ascher, author of the new book "Portfolio Society: On the Capitalist Mode of Prediction" and Pam Brown, Strike Debt activist and original Rolling Jubilee member, who speak to the power relations of a prediction-based economy. Plus, an interview with Mandy Cabot, CEO of Dansko shoes who chose her workers over a corporate buyout. She's joined by Richard Eidlin, co-founder of the American Sustainable Business Council, in an interview from the Progressive Congress, earlier this year.
