Rising Up with Sonali

As Congress hands Donald Trump a major legislative victory in passing a bill to weaken the Dodd-Frank financial regulations, future recessions now appear more likely. On our show today we’ll speak with former investment banker turned author Nomi Prins who’s latest book Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World tells the story of what happened globally after the 2008 recession. Then, we’ll turn to another economist, Dr. Richard Wolff, who recently spoke in Los Angeles about what he calls “Trumponomics.” We’ll play an excerpt of his entertaining yet informative speech.
