Taxing the Multinationals One economics editor says Washington has been running a " fiscal clown show " for the past 10 years by spending more and taxing less. The report that General Electric earned more than $5 billion in profit while paying no taxes at all focused attention on multinational corporations. We hear how they do it, using laws approved by both parties in Congress that allow them to keep their money overseas. Congress could change those laws to help pay down the deficit. Should the world's super-power use its clout to get corporations to pay their fair share?
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.
Border security and campaign promises President Trump has promised tightened borders and a big beautiful wall. Guest host Barbara Bogaev looks at two tent-poles of the President's immigration policy: extreme vetting of visa applicants and building the US-Mexico border wall.
