Christmas for Corporations

diane_teeEvery day looks a lot like Christmas for corporations looking for subsidy handouts from local governments. Author and activist Greg Leroy describes the “Great American Jobs Scam” in which corporations seek subsidies from state and local governments, giving little in return.

Then, an update on the saga of fisher woman Diane Wilson. She’s recently been arrested at a Tom Delay fundraiser and sent to jail for at least four months. Her crime: calling attention to Dow Chemical’s responsibility for cleaning up the enormous environmental,health and economic mess its subsidiary Union Carbide has left behind in Bhopal, India.

Finally, a holiday reflection from Dr. Jody, in the Corner Office at Corporate Watchdog Radio.
