A new Yale study says what we already knew about universal healthcare. It's a lot cheaper than the US's for-profit healthcare system and it saves significant numbers of lives. Lee looks at what forces are keeping the horrific system that we live under alive. In "Taking The News From Behind" Lee covers how the State of Georgia is in two legal binds with two friends of the show, the Boy Scouts of America went into bankruptcy while being sued for their child sex abuse scandal, the New York Times declared the "end of Australia as we know it" because of the climate crisis, and more.
Natalie McGill takes a look at the unequal distribution of the subsidies that the Trump administration released to struggling farmers in the wake of his losing trade war with China. Like everything in the US, the powerful took advantage of the weak. The largest most successful farms took all of the assistance leaving smaller farms in the dirt. Anders Lee reports on how the field of economics consistently fails to address the structural cause of the problems that it analyzes. Economists are able to study inequality, physical illness, and mental health issues but they consistently ignore how the capitalist system is at the root of these problems.
