Political Analysis - 5/22/12
May 22nd, 2012 by progressiveradionetwork at 6:00 pm

Tonight on Political Analysis, Sandy LeonVest opens the show with segments from the anti-NATO demo in Chicago on May 21, airing audio clips from veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, who, after throwing away their medals, reveal how they feel NOW about the wars they served in. Next, Sandy brings on ex-financial industry executive Richard (RJ) Eskow. They talk about RJ's recent piece in the Huffington Post, which critiques JP Morgan Chase's latest scandal -- a multi-billion dollar derivative transaction gone wildly awry, resulting in the loss of billions of dollars. RJ also talks about the imperative of putting an end to Big Banks, if Americans are ever to see an end to massive financial corruption and reclaim our democracy -- and the banking-war connection.

Richard Eskow is a Senior Fellow with the Campaign for America's Future and he hosts a radio program called “The Breakdown,” aired on We Act Radio in Washington DC. His work with Big Insurance company AIG and other insurance, risk management, and financial organizations makes him well-suited for the mission he pursues today – exposing corporate fraud and corruption – especially in the financial industry.
