The Myth of Americans Living Beyond Their Means with Robert Reich
 
03:58
There is a belief that Americans got into economic turmoil because of living beyond their means. Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains why this a myth, that most Americans do not live beyond their means and that their "means" have not kept up with the economy. Where has the wealth accumulated and why aren't the top of the top being surtaxed while average-earning and the poor shoulder the burden? https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Post Election: Conservative Media Hot Air (TJDS)
 
08:38
Tom Brokaw made an all-covering, vague election prediction and still somehow got it wrong. Rush Limbaugh made a "landslide" prediction, then went back and said he didn't (ask his brother).

#NoFilter: Child Free By Choice - Deal With It!
 
03:13
Everyone should have children, right? Not necessarily, say members of the millennial generation, who are increasingly rethinking the notion that having children is essential to becoming a complete person. Yet there's also been a backlash, with many parents today accusing the childless of selfishness and demonstrating craven self-interest. In this week's #NoFilter segment, Ana Kasparian takes on the haters, insisting that the choice to have - or not have - children lies with individual couples alone, and busybody parents should reserve their judgmental attitudes for their poorly behaved children.

The Three Reasons Why Americans AREN'T Rising Up in Open Revolt (Robert Reich)
 
03:22
With income inequality rising, the middle class increasingly squeezed and more of us than ever feeling the pinch, why hasn't the American public risen up to demand reform? It's happened before, as in the Progressive Era, during the New Deal and the Great Society, so why not now? In his latest "Regulators" vlog, University of California Economics professor and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich explains the three reasons keeping Americans from rising up in open rebellion to demand change.

The Hoax of Entitlement Reform with Robert Reich
 
05:01
Conservatives are touting entitlement reform as a solution to looming deficits. But, as the title of this video suggests, this is not the route to take. Entitlement reform is a distraction. Changing social security and medicare doesn't affect the deficit, and changing the rules to raise the age for recipients only shifts the burden to the next generation of laborers. So what is the solution? What is the major drain on our budget that truly does need reform, and how can that be done?

Republicans vs. Democrats: Why So Angry? with Robert Reich
 
03:42
Americans are more bitterly divided along political lines today than they have been in nearly a century. While the advent of social media and the shout-fests of opinionated radio and cable TV have played a role, the greatest factor driving today's political polarization is income inequality. So says UC Berkeley Professor of Public Policy and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who argues that the erosion of the middle class - and the social contract that kept those in the middle from falling too far below - has led to a search for scapegoats, feeding the demagogues, the trolls and the sowers of division.

Why the GOP Will Never Learn with Robert Reich
 
05:01
It seems like the disaster of the 2012 elections should have taught Republicans that it's time to reform their strategy. What they were doing before, especially on social issues has been proven to clash with what Americans believe, and are on the wrong side of history. So, will Republicans take the lesson from their failure, reform, and change their strategy to keep themselves a viable party? No, of course not. Why? Who is the Republican party's base and why are they seemingly more valuable to the party than the nation's other ever-growing demographics? It is possible to reform a political party.The Democratic Party of the 1990s simply ignored its old base and became New Democrats, spearheading a North American Free Trade Act (to the chagrin of organized labor), performance standards in classrooms (resisted by teachers' unions) and welfare reform and crime control (upsetting traditional liberals). But why won't Republicans change with the times? Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains why the GOP must change and why they ultimately won't.

Bring Back the Basic Bargain with Robert Reich
 
06:26
Throughout much of the 20th century, the American political and economic system thrived based on a fundamental bargain - that US employers would pay their workers enough to purchase the goods and services US companies produced. Meanwhile government's role was to maintain this bargain, allowing wages and living standards to rise across the board. Today, however, that bargain has been all but destroyed, and as Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains, the petty squabbling soon to return to Washington when Congress reconvenes will prove useless at improving the economy until this compact between workers, employers and government is restored.

Breaking up the Banks with Robert Reich
 
03:02
Too big to fail? We all know that term was a misnomer when applied to big banks. Robert Reich explains why it's so important to break up the biggest banks, which have grown exponentially over the past few years. This idea of breaking up the banks isn't new, and is supported by Federal Reserve Governor Dan Tarullo, Former Citigroup CEO Sanford Weil, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, Senator Sherrod Brown, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. It's clear we can't afford another TARP bailout. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20
The Economic Elephant with Robert Reich
 
05:29
What's really wrong with the economy, and why? Unemployment is still high and job creation hasn't made a big dent this many years into the so-called recovery. Who has the best plan? Is it the Keynesians? On the other end, the Austerics? The answer is neither, really. They both neglect the economic elephant in the room - spreading wealth to the wealthy keeps buying power away from the middle class; it simply does not lead to economic recovery, historically. Perhaps looking to history can help us learn what works and what doesn't. Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) delivers a compelling argument for a 6-point plan for economic recovery. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

Ending the Global "Race to the Bottom"
 
05:32
Even as the Apple Corporation is being roundly criticized for using its Irish affiliates - some of which have no actual employees - to avoid paying billions in US taxes, American elected officials continue to call for LOWER corporate taxes to make the United States more "competitive." The cause of this seeming disconnect: a worldwide "race to the bottom" in which nations compete to attract capital investment, typically by cutting corporate tax rates, dismantling regulations and driving down wages. As a result, the power of transnational corporations continues to grow while individual nations lose their capacity to control their own markets. There is a solution, however. In this video Robert Reich (Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and former Labor Secretary) explains how large economic entities, such as the United States and the European Union, can leverage one important bargaining chip - access to their consumer markets - to curb the power of corporations and serve their citizens, rather than the profit-at-all-costs interests of global capital. https://twitter.com/RBReich http://robertreich.org/ Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20

What's really happening in education politics? Would you believe it's a battle between greedy school teachers and corporate CEOs who want what's best for the children? Well, not so much.

Charter schools do however make sense as a business strategy, allowing corporations to make big money off school children. How does this strategy work? David Sirota explains.

In this video, "The Nation" editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel recalls her first interaction with Bachmann, and the echoes of McCarthyism and red-baiting represented by the politics of fear, intolerance and divisiveness that have come to reflect Bachmannism. www.thenation.com @KatrinaNation Support The Point for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=townsquaretyt-20
