Politico’s BP Sugar Daddy, capitalism’s successful alternative & Fukushima censorship
In this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin, discusses the decision by Politico to publish an article on how BP didn’t ruin the Gulf, while obscuring the fact that it was an opinion piece written by a top BP executive. Abby then speaks with economist and University of Massachusetts professor, Richard Wolff, about the co-operative economic structure of the Mondragon corporation in Spain and how this could serve as a model for other businesses around the world. Abby then reflects on the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and explains why this wasn’t a necessary action in order to end World War II. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with investigative reporter, Karl Grossman, about the latest updates with Fukushima, and the decision by a Japanese reporter to resign over censorship of his coverage.
