Smart Show (goharrison) with Cary Harrison – 07.06.15

Icarus mellesinidis — he’ll call live from Greece to the 646 number. In Athens, Greek Olympic gold medal champion looks at live unfolding events as Greeks are now restricted from withdrawing money from their ATMs. Also, Jason Crow, and James Henry.
Henry is former chief economist at the international consultancy firm McKinsey & Co. He is now senior fellow at the Columbia University Center for Sustainable International Investment.

REPEAT – Greece: From Austerity to Prosperity? Conversations with Ellen Brown and Binoy Kampmark
In this installment of the Global Research News Hour, we examine the dynamics of the Greek economy and why the Greek people voted the anti-austerity Syriza Party to power.

In the second half hour, scholar, RMIT University lecturer and Counterpunch contributing editor Binoy Kampmark talks about the background of Syriza, the political culture on the ground, and what the future may hold for a financially emancipated Greece as well as other European countries.

We begin our 3-week experiment with a new format: two in-depth analyses, one in each half of the show. We begin by considering the different meanings of class, class analysis and class struggle across human history and why those differences matter so much now. Today’s second half explores how socialism evolved from a basic alternative to capitalism into a state capitalism not so different from private capitalism.
