Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report
Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
The Making of Global Capitalism:
The Political Economy of American Empire
. Leo Panitch, Canada Research Chair in Comparative Political
Economy in the Dept. of Political Science at York University
. Sam Gindin, former Research Dir. of the Canadian Autoworkers
Union and Prof. at York University
Panitch and Gindin discuss the intimate relationship between modern
capitalism and the American state, including its role as an informal
empire promoting free trade and capital movements. Through a
powerful historical survey, they’ll show how the US has superintended
the restructuring of other states in favor of competitive markets and
coordinated the management of increasingly frequent financial crises.
Analyzing the first great economic crisis of the twenty-first century, they
identify the centrality of the social conflicts that occur within states rather
than between them and how these emerging fault lines hold out the
possibility of new political movements transforming nation states and
transcending global markets.
"The Story of Mouseland"
Narrated by Tommy Douglas, leader of the Saskatchewan
Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and, later, the New
Democratic Party of Canada, both social democratic parties.
A political fable expressing the CCF's view that the political system was
flawed in offering voters a false dilemma: the choice of two parties,
neither of which represented their interests.
