Tomorrow Jay Gordon will join us to talk about racism especially in movies and media but from an economic perspective. I guarantee we are going to go all out and probably say a lot of awful things about a lot of people so tune in };)

Continued our eclectic discussion about the economics taboos you don’t hear about in pop-economics on the mainstream media.  Show#3 (2012-10-19)

We played one of my all time favorite songs by The Clash, Guns of Brixton (from the London Calling LP):

“When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting in death row

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you’ll have to answer too
Oh, Guns of Brixton

The money feels good
And your life you like it well
But surely your time will come
As in heaven, as in hell”

Our guest was Corey Carol.

We talked a little about the VP debate but moved on the a discussion about some of the taboo topics in economics. We definitely need to revisit this topic.

Note: lots of tech problems with the WPRK91.5 studio literally falling to pieces. First 10 seconds are barely audible but then it’s much better–sorry :(
