Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Peter M. Robinson, Murdoch Distinguished Policy Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Host of Uncommon Knowledge (https://www.hoover.org/publications/uncommon-knowledge)™ — Hoover's Video Series Program and Former Special Assistant and Speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. Peter Robinson is the Murdoch Distinguished Policy Fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he writes about business and politics, edits Hoover's quarterly journal, the Hoover Digest (https://www.hoover.org/publications/hoover-digest), and hosts Hoover's video series program, Uncommon Knowledge (https://www.hoover.org/publications/uncommon-knowledge)™. Robinson spent six years in the White House, serving from 1982 to 1983 as chief speechwriter to Vice President George Bush and from 1983 to 1988 as special assistant and speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. He wrote the historic Berlin Wall address in which President Reagan called on General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall!" The conversation will begin by focusing on the 33rd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. On November 9, 1989, five days after a major peaceful protest in East Berlin which gathered half a million people, the communist rulers gave permission for gates along the Berlin Wall to be opened. The fall of Communist Eastern Europe was hastened by the principled leadership of President Ronald Reagan joined by then-UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, Germany's Helmut Kohl, Vaclav Havel, leaders within Poland, and other countries in the Soviet block yearning for freedom. The historic day reminded the world of a speech that was delivered on June 12, 1987 by President Ronald Reagan when he shared these words (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WX00QkvK-mQ&feature=youtu.be): "_Behind me stands a wall that encircles the free sectors of this city, part of a vast system of barriers that divides the entire continent of Europe. . . . Standing before the Brandenburg Gate, every man is a German, separated from his fellow men. Every man is a Berliner, forced to look upon a scar. . . . As long as this gate is closed, as long as this scar of a wall is permitted to stand, it is not the German question alone that remains open, but the question of freedom for all mankind. . . . General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!_" —Ronald Reagan, address at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987 Topics covered on America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/): — Reflecting on the 33rd Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. — President Ronald Reagan's principled leadership and his clear articulation of moral clarity based on timeless principles and values. —Peter Robinson shares the real story behind the speech in Berlin, how the message captured the realities on the ground during the Cold War, and the opposition by advisors opposing Reagan's challenge to Gorbachev. — The Unfinished Work in advancing freedom and the rule of law in Eastern Europe. — Brief observations of the US midterm elections and public policies in America.

Liz Truss war angetreten, die neue Eiserne Lady zu werden. Während jedoch Margaret Thatcher elf Jahre regierte, währte Truss‘ Amtszeit nur anderthalb Monate. Nach ihrem Rücktritt sollten wir uns nicht von den parteipolitischen Querelen ablenken lassen, stattdessen sollten wir den Fokus auf die Ökonomie verschieben, denn der Fall ist ziemlich einmalig in der Geschichte westlicher moderner Staaten. Liz Truss und ihr Finanzminister wollten Thatchers Wirtschafts- und Finanzpolitik wiederbeleben, indem sie den Spitzensteuersatz von 45 auf 40 Prozent senken wollten, um so im Sinne der längst widerlegten Trickle-Down-Theorie allen Briten mehr Wohlstand zukommen zu lassen. Das überrascht bei einer neoliberalen Regierung wenig, erstaunlich war aber die Reaktion der Finanzmärkte. Sie entzogen der Regierung das Vertrauen, indem sie sich plötzlich weniger interessiert an britischen Staatsanleihen zeigten. Die britische Notenbank wiederum versuchte, mit höheren Zinsen zu locken, als dies nicht gelang, kaufte die Notenbank selbst Staatsanleihen, was das Vertrauen der Märkte nicht gerade erhöhte. Das Finanzkapital zeigte sich immer skeptischer – rückte es etwa von neoliberalen Dogmen ab? Während Thatcher die Arbeiter disziplinierte, disziplinierten die Märkte Truss, die dadurch zum Aufgeben gezwungen wurde. Mehr dazu von Ole Nymoen und Wolfgang M.

La ContraCrónica
Rishi Sunak y la última oportunidad

La ContraCrónica

El excanciller de Hacienda Rishi Sunak se convirtió este martes en el nuevo primer ministro del Reino Unido. Antes de eso, el lunes la exministra de Defensa, Penny Mordaunt, abandonó la carrera dejándole el camino expedito. Sunak tenía muchos más apoyos que Mordaunt y, como la cosa ya está muy mal, quiso evitar unas nuevas primarias que desgastarían aún más al partido conservador. Ambos ya se habían medido durante este verano tras la dimisión de Boris Johnson. En esa ocasión la final se jugó entre Liz Truss y Rishi Sunak. Truss se impuso dando paso al mandato más breve de un primer ministro del Reino Unido en toda su historia, sólo 45 días extremadamente problemáticos en los que la primera ministra presentó una ambiciosa reforma fiscal que los mercados recibieron con espanto. El ascenso de Sunak a la cima de la política británica es algo que muchos analistas daban por descontado desde hace un tiempo. Durante las primarias del mes de agosto, Truss se ganó a los militantes del partido recordando a Margaret Thatcher y prometiendo una revolución en la economía británica, que gracias a ella se revitalizaría y crecería como no lo ha hecho desde hace muchos años. Prometió grandes rebajas en los impuestos, pero manteniendo e incluso incrementando el gasto público. Según ella, ambas recetas combinadas impulsarían el crecimiento económico sin dañar a las cuentas públicas. En los debates de las primarias Sunak, que fue durante años banquero de inversión, bautizó los planes de Liz Truss como "economía de cuento de hadas" advirtiendo que el programa de su oponente podría agravar la inflación y provocar una reacción violenta en los mercados financieros. Tan pronto como Truss materializó sus promesas en un mini presupuesto, se demostró que Sunak tenía razón. A finales de septiembre la libra se derrumbó y, con ella la Bolsa y los bonos británicos. Truss ignoró primero la reacción del mercado y luego tuvo que cesar a su canciller de Hacienda, Kwasi Kwarteng, que había llegado de su mano a Downing Street y que era el padre del plan. A Kwarteng le sucedió Jeremy Hunt que, tan pronto como se sentó en su despacho, tiró el plan desautorizando a Liz Truss y dejándola en una posición insostenible. Hace una semana la primera ministra estaba ya contra las cuerdas y lo único que quedaba por saber era cuánto tiempo aguantaría. No fue mucho, un día más tarde, ya con la bancada conservadora convertida en un clamor, decidió presentar su dimisión ahondando aún más la crisis dentro del partido. Rishi Sunak, de 42 años, nació en Southampton, pero sus abuelos eran inmigrantes provenientes de la India. Esto le convierte en el primer jefe de gabinete con raíces indias y el primero que no profesa la religión cristiana. Sus padres hicieron fortuna en el sur de Inglaterra. Su madre era farmacéutica y su padre médico lo que le permitió estudiar en una prestigiosa escuela privada, graduarse en Oxford y realizar un máster en la Universidad de Stanford. Tras ello empezó a trabajar en Goldman Sachs, donde ganó mucho dinero. Gracias a eso y a su matrimonio con una multimillonaria india es el miembro más rico de la cámara de los Comunes. Sus críticos aducen que tiene demasiado dinero como para atraer a los votantes de la clase trabajadora, pero por ahora su principal labor no va a ser ganar las elecciones, sino estabilizar la economía británica.

Neil Kinnock, Baron Kinnock PC is a British former politician. As a member of the Labour Party, he served as a Member of Parliament from 1970 until 1995, first for Bedwellty and then for Islwyn. He was the Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition from 1983 until 1992, and Vice-President of the European Commission from 1999 to 2004. Kinnock was considered as being on the soft left of the Labour Party.Born and raised in South Wales, Kinnock was first elected to the House of Commons in the 1970 general election. He became the Labour Party's shadow education minister after the Conservatives won power in the 1979 general election. After the party under Michael Foot suffered a landslide defeat to Margaret Thatcher in the 1983 election, Kinnock was elected Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition. During his tenure as leader, Kinnock proceeded to fight the party's left wing, especially its Militant tendency, and he opposed NUM leader Arthur Scargill's methods in the 1984–85 miners' strike. He led the party during most of the Thatcher administration, which included its third successive election defeat when Thatcher won the 1987 general election. Although Thatcher had won another landslide, Labour regained sufficient seats for Kinnock to remain Leader of the Opposition following the election.Kinnock led the Labour Party to a surprise fourth consecutive defeat at the 1992 general election, despite the party being ahead of John Major's Conservative government in most opinion polls, which had predicted either a narrow Labour victory or a hung parliament. Shortly afterwards, he resigned as Leader of the Labour Party, being succeeded in the ensuing leadership election by John Smith. He left the House of Commons in 1995 to become a European Commissioner. He went on to become the Vice-President of the European Commission under Romano Prodi from 1999–2004, before being elevated to the House of Lords as Baron Kinnock in 2005. Until the summer of 2009, he was also Chairman of the British Council and President of Cardiff University. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Con estos dos jefes de estado a la cabeza, más de 30 países se convencieron de este problema y firmaron el Protocolo de Montreal en 1987, el primer tratado global de reducción de la contaminación mundial. Esta es la mirada en profundidad a la razón por la cual la capa de ozono muestra signos de mejora hoy y cómo se proporcionó un futuro mejor para las generaciones venideras.

Actor and former MP Glenda Jackson reveals the influences and experiences that inspired her work on stage and screen. One of the greatest actors of her generation, Glenda won Academy Awards for Women in Love and A Touch Of Class, and was Oscar nominated for Sunday Bloody Sunday. She has also won Tony, Emmy and Golden Globes awards for her theatre and television work. In 1992 she gave up acting to become a Labour MP, winning her seat five times. But in 2016 she returned to the stage, playing King Lear in London and New York, and to television for a BAFTA winning performance as an elderly women with dementia in Elizabeth Is Missing. Glenda Jackson recalls her working class upbringing in Birkenhead, and how she won a scholarship to the drama school RADA with help from the manager of the Boots chemists' where she worked at the time. She chooses the director Peter Brook as a major influence on her work, having starred in his radical 1964 stage production of the play Marat/Sade, and the version he subsequently adapted for cinema. She remembers also working closely with the director Ken Russell on several films, including the Oscar-winning Women in Love, adapted from the DH Lawrence novel. Glenda's comic appearances on the Morecambe and Wise Show in the early 1970s are recalled as career highlights. Glenda Jackson also chooses Margaret Thatcher as huge influence on her life and career, as it was the policies of the former Prime Minister which prompted her to give up acting for 23 years while she served as a Labour MP.

Record numbers of nurses are quitting the NHS in England, according to new data analysis by the Nuffield Trust for the BBC. More than 40,000 have left the health service in the past year. Another report published this week from NHS Providers said the squeeze on pay amid rising inflation is forcing nurses and other staff to stop contributions to their pension, skip meals and take on second jobs. Anita Rani speaks to Molly Case, a clinical specialist nurse, working in the community in South London. We talk about family WhatsApp group chats. They can be a source of great joy or great annoyance. We speak to author Nina Stibbe and Journalist Nell Frizzell who has been looking into this. Regarded as one of the greatest English-language novelists of this century, Dame Hilary Mantel was perhaps less well known for her brilliant writing on chronic illness. Throughout her life the author suffered from a severe form of endometriosis. Emma speaks to writer Sarah Perry, author of the Essex Serpent, who has had her own experience of chronic illness and Eleanor Thom, author of Private Parts, how to really live with endometriosis.

There have been demands for greater autonomy for Scotland within the UK since the country joined the Union in 1707, but it was only in 1997- 25 years ago this month- that Scotland finally got its own parliament. 1997 was the culmination of a long struggle for self-government led by a group of people in Scotland, some left-wing, others right, many non-descript. These people, the devolutionists, are the subject of today's episode. Whilst few can, in and of itself, criticise any group's desire for self-government, the matter of devolution- that is to say, the giving of powers- to parliaments in Scotland and Wales, has proven highly controversial. Many British commentators argue that the granting of a Parliament to the Scots, far from satisfying demands for self-government, merely gave them a taste for it, leading inevitably to calls for total separation from the UK. Whether that's true is up for debate, but there is little doubt that many people in England have grown tired of the Scots, and are now for the first time contemplating English independence. My guest for this conversation is a man who can truly describe himself as a devolutionist. Lord Jack McConnell served as the First Minister of Scotland- the position now held by Nicola Sturgeon- from 2001 until 2007. Jack is the first former head of government I have had on the podcast, and it was brilliant to speak to him about his own experiences running Scotland in the early days of the parliament. We discuss the flourishing of the modern Scottish, as opposed to British, identity; the government of Margaret Thatcher as a catalyst for change, the complex interplay between Brexit and Scottish independence, the future of Jack's Labour Party in Scotland, and much more.

They meet on a weekly basis, they have the power to unseat the Prime Minister and they were known to Margaret Thatcher as the "men in grey suits". The 1922 Committee have played a pivotal role in the recent fortunes of one of the oldest and most successful political parties anywhere in the world, the Conservative Party. So, who are "the '22"? How were they formed, and what powers do they hold over the Tory leadership and the party? Professor Sir David Cannadine tells the story of the origins of the 1922 Committee and gains an insight into how our most powerful political party operates, behind the closed doors of Committee Room 14. Back in 1922, Britain was ruled by a coalition, led by the Liberal Prime Minister, David Lloyd George. But the Conservatives were the majority in government and in parliament, and they were becoming increasingly disillusioned by Lloyd George's corrupt ways and irresponsibility. In October 1922, backbench Tories held a meeting at the Carlton Club, and they withdrew their support, which brought the Lloyd George coalition to an end. The Conservatives won a landslide majority in the ensuing general election, and more than one hundred Tories became MPs for the first time. They needed to find their feet in Parliament and the Chief Whip offered to make arrangements to brief them at weekly meetings. So The Conservative Private Members (1922) Committee came into being - in April 1923! While in recent times the '22 has acquired a reputation as being the body that makes and unmakes Tory leaders, that wasn't what it was set up to do, and it wasn't what it did for most of its history. David speaks to the current Chairman of the 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady MP, and the Vice Chair Nusrat Ghani; former '22 Chairman Lord Archie Hamilton; Lord Stephen Parkinson, former Political Secretary to Teresa May; Caroline Slocock, former Private Secretary to Mrs Thatcher; to the political historians Lord Philip Norton and Dr Emily Jones; and to Christopher Hope, the Telegraph's Associate Political Editor.

Cory Doctorow writes when he's anxious. He has eight books coming out soon. Yep, it's been a tough couple of years. The number of upcoming books gives us a sense of the wide range of subjects Doctorow concerns himself with. His upcoming Chokepoint Capitalism, co-authored with Rebecca Giblin, is about monopoly, monopsony, and fairness in the creative arts labor market. Cory and Steve return to several themes throughout this episode, including the crushing effects of concentrated power. The past 40 years have seen an expansion of copyright laws, but the share of income creators receive from their labor has been in free fall and shows no sign of slowing. We know how Amazon treats its employees, so we shouldn't be surprised that it abuses writers. Amazon's audio book platform, Audible, controls about 90% of the market, making it able to steal from artists in multiple ways. (After listening to this podcast, go check out #audiblegate on social media.) Excessive corporate power and monopoly concentration have captured and neutered regulatory bodies and strong-armed the unions. Cory's book focuses on the labor of artists and creators, but workers in every industry are fighting to stay afloat. Monopolies also have a choke hold on us as consumers – and as citizens facing social and environmental catastrophe. Neoliberalism relies upon our isolation – our belief that each of us is facing the world alone and powerless. By effectively starving the machinery of the state, it too is rendered impotent. At the end of the road, there is only capital. Margaret Thatcher said, “there is no alternative.” As a science fiction author, Cory Doctorow has a problem with that. His job is to imagine alternatives. Cory Doctorow (craphound.com) is a science fiction author, activist and journalist. He is the author of many books, most recently RADICALIZED and WALKAWAY, science fiction for adults; HOW TO DESTROY SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM, nonfiction about monopoly and conspiracy; IN REAL LIFE, a graphic novel; and the picture book POESY THE MONSTER SLAYER. His latest book is ATTACK SURFACE, a standalone adult sequel to LITTLE BROTHER; his next nonfiction book is CHOKEPOINT CAPITALISM, with Rebecca Giblin, about monopoly, monopsony and fairness in the creative arts labor market, (Beacon Press, 2022). In 2020, he was inducted into the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame. @craphound on Twitter

Some of the more, um, senior members of the Macro N Cheese team can remember a time when the Democratic Party supported labor and the union movement. Then we came to realize we had it backwards – it's really the Party expecting support from the unions, who made donations, helped with campaigning, and got out the vote. Followers of this podcast are regularly introduced to guests who bring word of a newly invigorated labor movement – one that is no longer tied to the Democrats' apron strings. Steve's guest is Liz Medina, the Executive Director of the Vermont State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. Her job title does a poor job of telling you what makes her so interesting. She is an artist (check out her http://www.atlizmedina.com/manifestoforcommonart-601108.html (Manifesto for Common Art)) as well as a podcaster working to build an oral working-class history and culture. She's a labor organizer with an expansive vision of the need for class struggle unionism and the understanding that unions don't exist in isolation; they must be connected to community and independent political groups. She speaks of the need to rebuild the relationship between the left and the labor movement, which has been decoupled since the days of the New Left in the 1970s. “I really do believe that the politics will follow what we do on the ground in our workplaces and in our communities … It is very hard work, but it's easier when we feel like we are part of a community in doing that. There's a real interest of our bosses and of capital more broadly in us staying isolated and alone and disconnected and out of community and not having a society at all, frankly. “There is no society,” as Margaret Thatcher would say. We really need that. We need those connections to continue to have strength to keep on going...” Liz talks about the labor movement in general, past and present, and the Vermont AFL-CIO. She describes the need to turn the movement around and adopt class struggle unionism. “We believe in the rank and file strategy,” she says. “We believe in prioritizing organizing and not being afraid of being militant.” Activists should follow suit. Liz Medina is the Executive Director of the Vermont State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. Previously, she served as the Goddard College Staff Union Co-Chair, UAW 2322.
