(ed:..here in new zealand we already have this world – with our new ‘progressive’ government/prime minister..woo-hoo..!..we can show the rest of the world how to achieve this..eh.?..after all – we have done this before..eh..?..)
In the Trump era what would an authentically populist progressive political agenda look like?
What would a progressive US look like with regard to jobs – the environment – finance capital and the standard of living?
What would it look like in terms of education and health care – justice and equality?
In an exclusive interview with C.J. Polychroniou for Truthout – world-renowned public intellectuals Noam Chomsky and Robert Pollin tackle these issues.
Noam Chomsky is professor emeritus of linguistics at MIT and laureate professor in the department of linguistics at the University of Arizona.
Robert Pollin is distinguished professor of economics and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Their views lay the foundation for a visionary — yet eminently realistic — progressive social and economic order for the United States.
