Renegade Economists Show 387
Alanna Hartzok discusses US Imperialism through South America, Eastern Europe and beyond. The backlash is such that a possible breakdown in US unipolar dominance is underway. The systemic imperative encouraging such strategic expansion is then explained. We finish on a positive with the Universal Basic Income.
Alanna is the author of the Earth Belongs to Everyone (free e-book PDF download), recent Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania’s District 9, General Secretary of the International Union for Land Value Taxation and International Liaison for the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation.
During the interview we discuss the Venuezuela coup attempt, Paul Craig Roberts on Iran, and then move onto Alanna’s must read essay The Economics of War and Peace. How many US army bases on foreign soil are there? 113 in Italy alone!
That completes four weeks of the big names in our economic niche, of Anderson, Harrison, Hudson and Hartzok. Show your support for the show by becoming a member to our parent body Prosper Australia. Our membership year has just turned over, so now is the perfect time to support the movement.
