Economic Update: From Bad Loans to Taxing the Property of the Wealthy

This segment includes an update on the Pentagon’s overpayments and a discussion of how mortgages are tilting toward the rich, as well as coverage of the subprime car loan bubble and the silence around intangible property tax. We also discuss the economic organizations of the Republican and Democratic Parties, and more on socialism and Marx.
