How Journalism Integrity Deficits Contribute to Economic Confusion

by Dr. David Gruder

I strongly recommend that you watch a video from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart that blasts CNBC for completely and irresponsibly blurring the lines between reporting and punditry. Be prepared to have your mind blown over how many extremely important pronouncements CNBC, one of the most looked-to stations for coverage of financial news, has been frighteningly wrong with. This remarkably educational satire speaks for itself without any further commentary from me, but watch all the way through to the end of this 8 minute video to get its full impact.

A Much Better Alternative to a Free Market

by Dr. David Gruder

The Truth About the Free Market That Nobody Dares Say:
There Is a Much Better Alternative to a Free Market

The economic mess we are in came about because of a free-wheeling free market. The truth is that despite what believers in an unregulated free market insist, the free market system as it has been allowed to function is directly responsible for creating our financial crisis. This is NOT because freedom is a bad thing or a free market is a bad idea. This is NOT to imply that socialism is a better alternative than a free market.

PBS Frontline Video Explaining Our Current Financial Situation

by Dr. David Gruder

The following Frontline episode was broadcast on February 17, 2009. Called "Inside the Meltdown," this 60 minute video tells the story behind why an astonished U.S. Congress was told in a private session by Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, that the American economy was in grave danger of a complete meltdown within a matter of days. This well-done PBS (U.S. Public Broadcasting System) documentary pieces together information from many sources to provide a more complete understanding of what happened to our economy than most people have.
