Raghuram G. Rajan on how hidden fractures threaten the world economy

When Raghuram Rajan warned a group of bankers in 2005 that the economy was headed for a steep and steady collapse, he was met with critical remarks and skepticism.  Now, as the world tries to climb its way out of this deep hole of a recession, Rajan warns us again about another economic crisis: what brought the economy to a sudden halt in 2007 may actually threaten another downfall in the years to come.  Rajan fears that the United States’ efforts to avoid economic downturn and the continuation of American over consumption could lead to another “financial earthquake.” What exactly should U.S. and world leaders be doing to avoid another recession or depression?

 

Guest:

Raghuram Rajan, former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund; Eric J. Gleacher Distinguished Service Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and coauthor of “Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists.”

City Controller aims audit at LADWP

It’s a case of political intrigue in the Los Angeles city government.  The Department of Water & Power board meets tomorrow to discuss a proposed budget, following the controller’s audit released last Thursday that charged DWP executives with misleading the public when they refused to transfer $73.5 million to the city.  City Controller Wendy Greuel, who led the investigation, stated in the audit that the DWP had more than enough funds to aid the city’s shaky budget.  With a rate increase backed by Mayor Villaraigosa and the threat of shutting the city down for two days a week, how is it that the DWP’s $752 million available funds couldn’t help out the city?  Why refuse to transfer $73.5 million but then hike up the rates?

 

Guest:

Wendy Greuel, Los Angeles City Controller

Shot in the back: accident, momentary loss of reason, or homicide? The case of Johannes Mehserle

Shouting, chaos and confusion at the Fruitvale BART (Bay Area Rapid Transition) station in Oakland on New Years Day 2009 ended with Oscar Grant III, a young, African American man, shot in the back by twenty-eight-year-old, white BART police officer, Johannes Mehserle.   The shooting, widely viewed on YouTube and local news outlets, ignited a massive public outcry.  The murder trial of Mehserle, which began last week, has been moved to Los Angeles amid concerns of a tainted jury pool.  The question comes down to whether Mehserle shot and killed Grant intentionally or if it was the result of a tragic accident.  Mehserle’s defense attorney claims that the officer meant to grab his Taser, not his gun. Both the defense and the prosecution will rely heavily on video footage taken by bystanders at the station to help prove their case.  A case that is full of racial undertones that highlight the tensions between police and minority groups everywhere, what will be the ultimate outcome from the tragic meeting of Grant & Mehserle?

Michael Cardoza, criminal defense attorney; former prosecutor in Los Angeles, San Francisco & Alameda counties
