  • Kimberly Fountain, Social Security Expansion Campaign Director with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee talks about her group’s effort to expand the Social Security system by “scrapping the cap” on what millionaires and billionaires pay into Social Security contributions, financing benefit expansion and extending Social Security’s solvency for decades.
  • Ellen Brown, Chairman and President of the Public Banking Institute and author of 11 books, including “Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How We Can Break Free,” discusses government regulation and oversight of the nation’s banks after the 2008 financial crisis — including the tentative agreement by JPMorgan Chase Bank to pay the U.S. Department of Justice a record $13 billion to settle civil investigations into mortgage-backed securities in the period before the 2008 financial meltdown — and the recent jury verdict that found Bank of America Corp. liable for fraud in the sale of defective mortgages through its Countrywide unit. Brown will also outline the public banking model that her group advocates.
  • David Hoffman, founder and president emeritus of Internews, the world’s largest non-governmental media development organization and author of the new book, “Citizens Rising: Independent Media and the Spread of Democracy,” examines the connection between independent media and the prevention of conflict, facilitating free elections, exposing corruption, promoting nation-building and social change?

Phil Donahue will be speaking at a screening of the film this Thursday, November 7 at New Haven’s Worthington Hooker School, 691 Whitney Avenue at 7:00 pm.
