Experts on gun control and controversial federal monetary policies discussed the week's developments April 19 on MTL Washington Update, the weekly public affairs radio show I co-host at noon (EDT) with network founder Scott Draughon.
Legal reformer, Chicago public defender and law professor Jeanne Bishop, at right, described her opposition to gun proliferation, the death penalty, and excessive sentences.
Then Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, an author, amplified his column this week, The Attack on Gold. Roberts, at left, argued that the Federal Reserve is driving down the price of gold for political reasons dangerous to the economy and savers. His view is that Federal Reserve directors are risking vast sums to prevent the collapse of the dollar as a world currency following its printing of dollars via “quantitative easing.”
Roberts authored a new book predicting frightening economic changes ahead for the nation following a quarter century of what he called excessive deregulation of financial markets and “Crony Capitalism.” He served as Assistant Treasury Secretary during the Reagan Administration, and later worked as associate editor of the Wall Street Journal among other prestigious appointments.
We began the show with a news round-up, including commentaries on the latest developments in Washington.
