  • Bartlett Naylor, financial policy analyst with Public Citizen’s Congress Watch and former chief of investigations with the U.S. Senate Banking Committee. He discusses his group’s new report, “Safety Glass,” on the need to restore the Glass-Steagall firewall between commercial banking and investment banking — and a new bill introduced by Marcy Kaptur, the “Return to Prudent Banking Act of 2013.”
  • Peter Rugh, a Brooklyn-based activist, writer, and contributor to Waging Nonviolence and other publications, examines the protest movements that have recently come to life in Turkey, Brazil — and other nations before, i.e. Greece, Spain and Occupy Wall Street — and assesses what they have in common in terms of grievances and following a horizontal organizing model — and the bigger question of where all this may be headed.
  • Lynne Ide, Director of Advocacy with the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, provides an overview of the just- concluded CT legislative session on issues related to health care, including: the victory on Husky care of children, the loss on mandating Access Heath CT to negotiate premiums with insurers — and the status of CT’s implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act.
