PROGRAMME DETAILS

Date: June 23, 2008 (11 AM – 1.00 PM, Central Time)

Host: Stephen Lendman

This Week’s Guests: Doug Dowd and Peter Dale Scott

At age 89, Doug Dowd is still active, vibrant and thankfully so. For 50 years through the late 1990s, he was a distinguished interdisciplinary professor of economic history and more at Cornell, UC Berkeley and elsewhere. It went right along with his activism and progressive thinking. He’s no different today, except that he’s semi-retired, living full-time in Bolonga, Italy, and still teaching at nearby Modena University.

Dowd also authored many books, scholarly writings and numerous articles on cutting-edge economic, political and social issues.

Today’s topic – how a long-time distinguished thinker views today’s world as well as his 2007 book – At the Cliff’s Edge: World Problems and US Power.

Peter Dale Scott is a poet, author, researcher, former Canadian diplomat and UC, Berkeley English Professor. He’s also a Bush administration critic and anti-war activist going back to the 1960s.

He coined the phrase “deep politics” that he defines as follows: It “posits that in every culture and society there are facts which tend to be suppressed, because of the social and psychological costs of not doing so.” In other words, covert criminal policies, unaccountable, lawless, self-serving that hide disturbing truths like the Kennedy assassination, Vietnam war, and the current post-9/11 environment.

We’ll discuss his views on American politics and his recent Global Research article titled “9/11, Deep State Violence and the Hope of Internet Politics.”

About Global Research Hosts

Award winning author and economics professor Michel Chossudovsky is Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization which hosts the critically acclaimed website: www.globalresearch.ca.

Michel Chossudovsky has taught at universities and academic institutions in North America, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific. He has undertaken field-research in all major regions of the developing World and has traveled to over 100 countries.

“It was as a young visiting professor at the Catholic University in Santiago, Chile, that Chossudovsky’s interest in “economic repression” was first pricked. Augusto Pinochet’s military junta, which overthrew Salvador Allende in 1973, quadrupled the price of bread and introduced other measures that would now be referred to as “a structural adjustment program.”  Chossudovsky set out, with a doctor, to study the malnourishment resulting from the bread price hike. He wound up with a paper that held the Pinochet regime responsible not only for conventional forms of political repression but for “economic repression” that impoverished three-quarters of Chile’s population. Since then he has documented the purposeful impoverishment of people in dozens of countries.” (Juliet ONeill, The Ottawa Citizen)

He is an active member of the Canadian antiwar movement; he has also worked for several United Nations organizations on missions to Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa and has acted as adviser to governments of  developing countries. He is the author of several international best sellers including The Globalization of Poverty (2003) and America’s “War on Terrorism” (2005) and more than 500 articles. His writings have been translated into more than twenty languages. He is also a contributor to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
