Occupy Money, Federal Shutdown Impacts Your Food, Commercializing Space


Occupy Money Cooperative is raising money to begin its own low-cost debit card to allow access to banking services for the poor and the socially aware. They hope it will be the beginning of a full line of services that will empower the 99% and give alternatives to the big banks.

The Federal shutdown set back food safety and inspection programs across America. However, the food corporations kept processing. Was our food safe? Maybe. Maybe not. The shutdown also prevented distributions associated with food assistance programs. There were no winners in this matter.

Commercialization of space is becoming competitive and an increasingly attractive investment for a few investors. What is the potential for space and is there supervision for spaceports and commercial space flights? This is the early stage of a long-term trend.

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.
