History of Tax Cuts & George Monbiot’s Project for a Better Society

Considered as the largest legislative achievement of 2017 for Republicans, this Wednesday afternoon, the House of Representatives gave final approval to its tax bill and sends it to the President Trump’s desk for his signature.

Thus, on today’s show, we are in conversation with Isaac William Martin, Professor of Sociology at the University of California-San Diego, about history of GOP tax cuts. He is the author of Rich People’s Movements: Grassroots Campaigns to Untax the One Percent.

 

 

In the second part of the show, Mitch Jeserich talks to George Monbiot about his latest book Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics for an Age of Crisis. He explains how human nature is not competition and individualism that characterize our current system, but actually altruism and cooperation.
