Economic Update: Austerity Ends in Greece?

This episode provides updates on the Democrats’ “Robin Hood” tax, riders shifting from planes to buses and misleading US job market headlines. We also respond to questions on big bankers’ self-image, the basic economics of US federal estate tax, and state and local taxes. Finally, we interview professor Peter Bratsis on the upcoming Greek election and ongoing struggles – in Greece and beyond – to end austerity.
