Progressive economics, topical, theoretical, useful, commentary and forecasts, from Keynes and the New Deal, to Galbraith and the rise of the industrial state, to Stiglitz and Globalization, the Commons, and public goods. Economics worked between the Depression and the 1970s because it was based on Demand Side principles. Facing environmental challenges, global poverty and the decline of the U.S. economy, we need to go back to the roots of what worked.

Economics for everyone!
Just when we most desperately need it, economics both historical and current that seeks the truth and not a ruling class agenda.
This is the best economics broadcast I have ever found. Content is relevant, timely, and intelligent.
This is a great economics podcast that needs wider distribution. This is a perspective given with Mr Harvey's dry wit that is rarely heard in the main stream media. The defining debate of our time is on economic theory and this podcast provides strong argument for the demand side perspective.
