Max Keiser interviews me in the second half of the show, and we discuss the current #OWS movement and the role of agnotology in causing the current crisis and protest.

Go see Episode 199:

This week Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, talk about the European penny drops as more banks need more bailouts while the public debt clock ticks up to $40 trillion. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser interviews Michael Betancourt about the threat that Occupy Wall Street presents to our modern form of capitalism that relies on ignorance and passivity in the population in order to operate schemes of fraud and bubbles.
