Bernie's take on the new inflation numbers. We reprise an interview with President Clinton's Labor Secretary, Robert Reich. Who is to be blamed for the real cause of inflation, corporate greed, and incompetence? And here is a feel-good story, a kidney transplant that shows our real humanity. Professor Reich was President Clinton's Secretary of labor between 1993 and 1997. He is now the Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. He has written thirteen books, including The Work of Nations, Locked in the Cabinet, Supercapitalism, and of course, his impressive book, Aftershock, which we will discuss in this interview. His "Marketplace" commentaries can be found on publicradio.com and iTunes. He is also Common Cause's board chairman. Bernie Sanders praises Biden's economy as he scolded the media for failed working-class coverage: Sen. Bernie Sanders did not mince his words as he scolded the media for their poor coverage of the plight of the working class, even as he praised the relatively good economy.

One could take so many angles with a woman donating one of her kidneys, especially in these polarized times. MSNBC's Ali Velshi's guest on inflation: Capitalists will be capitalists. Here's my take: MSNBC's Ali Velshi continues highlighting a side of our economy with the depth other journalists fail to deliver.
