Dan Kervick Talks with Arnie Arnesen about Austerity, Jobs and Public Enterprise

By Dan Kervick

I appeared today on The Attitude with Arnie Arnesen.  The main topic of discussion was my recent NEP post “The Dangerous Collapse of Public Enterprise.”  We talked about the loss of jobs in the government sector, the role of government enterprise and employment in our economy, the ongoing Washington obsession with austerity, and the strategy of disaster capitalism.  My segment comes at about halfway through the first hour, following the Bachman Turner Overdrive “Taking Care of Business” introduction .  Have a listen!

  1. Around 28 minutes to start.

  2. I love the bit about that side of private enterprise not wanting accountability because you can’t lie to people. Fits Wall Street and the Revolving Door Politics currently masquerading as Democracy in the United States and most other countries on the planet to a tee. Societies give up their right to sanction at their peril.

  3. Dan, I thought it was a very good conversation, and that you did a fine job. I think she likes having you on!

  4. Aces Dan… rsp,
