Finland’s basic income & Dean Baker on jobs

Oil prices fell to their lowest in seven years on Monday after OPEC failed to agree to lower production targets at its Friday policy meeting. Ameera David weighs in and then sits down with Dean Baker – co-founder of the Center for Economic and Policy Research – to talk about the last US jobs report, the US economy and the Fed.

After the break, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at the rise in underdog political parties winning elections in Latin America and Europe. Ameera and RT correspondent Lindsay France discuss the rise in US gun sales. And in The Big Deal, Ameera and Edward Harrison discuss Finland scrapping its social programs and the minimum wage in favor of a basic income.
