bot_by_webgrafiIn the past couple years, there has been a small flood of books warning that technology is moving us towards an economy with many many fewer paying jobs. Most writers tackle this as an economic problem; this hour, we tackle it as a political one – one that requires a re-examination of what it means to be a democracy.

Guests:

  • Robert McChesney, political economist in the department of communications at the University of Illinois Urbana –Champaign
  • John Nichols, national correspondent for The Nation

They are the co-authors of People Get Ready: the fight against a jobless economy and a citizenless democracy
