I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Women of Congress - Sen. Warren takes on Wells Fargo CEO (and a throwback to Rep. Duckworth)

Senate Banking Committee in action! Elizabeth Warren calls for the resignation of the Wells Fargo CEO. "This is about accountability. You should resign. You should give back the money that you took while the scam was going on, and you should be criminally investigated by both the Department of Justice and the Securities & Exchange Commission." Watch the video here. Start at 7:00 here!

It reminded me of another hearing, in 2013. Rep. Duckworth (Purple Heart war veteran, first female double amputee during the conflict in Iraq) destroys Braulio Castillo - who got contracts based on his "status as a disabled veteran" (30% disability). He actually twisted his ankle in prep school. "It is because cases like you have poisoned the public opinion on these programs." Watch the video here. Start around 4:30 for this one.
