Math of inequality & optical illusion of choice (E399)

On this episode of Watching the Hawks, Tyrel, Tabetha, and Sean watch the money flow upwards in Oxfam’s new report that reveals that eight men have as much combined wealth as one half of the entire human race. Next, they look at Senator John McCain’s War Hawking new Defense Budget, and Tabetha Wallace pulls back the veil on our optical illusion of choice in the marketplace. RT’s Brigida Santos brings us to the Moon and back with Moon Express. And, finally, we take a look at the mis-education of Secretary of Education candidate Betsy DeVos.
