Does Capitalism Make Us Free?


We equate capitalism with freedom and democracy but evidence is accumulating the opposite is true. Concentrated wealth has eviscerated worker rights and income and has now moved into new fields of wealth. The capitalists have depleted our incomes and ability to consume so they’re moving in to take over public assets around the world. We’ll now have to buy our water, power, transportation, educations, and freedoms from them. Most likely, we’ll finance it from them. It’s an economic death spiral that needs to be discussed. Is extreme capitalism and the inherent consolidation of wealth and power the future we want?

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
