  1. Senate Kills Rule On Class Action Lawsuits Against Financial Firms : NPR

    Vice President Pence cast the tie-breaking vote last night in the Senate to repeal a rule that made it easier for Americans to sue their banks and credit card companies for wrongdoing. Wiping out the rule affects tens of millions of Americans who will be sent to arbitration on disputes over a credit card, checking account or prepaid card. It also dismantles the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which has been working on this for years.

  5. Dirk Bezemer - Growth and Crisis: The Two Faces of Credit

    At least since Joseph Schumpeter we know that credit is good for economic growth. At least since 2007 we know that too much credit foreshadows financial turmoil. Inspired by Keynes and Minsky, Dirk Bezemer pieces together a cross-country data set of credit and debt, investigating whether the two faces of credit are different for different forms of credit. And using agent-based modeling, he strives to capture the interaction between the financial and the real — this is new economic thinking.

  6. #105: How Small Firms Can Promote Diversity, with Heather Hackman

    In this episode, Dr. Heather Hackman helps us get a new perspective on diversity and the legal profession. She also explains why "doing diversity" doesn’t work, and what small firms actually need to do to increase diversity in the legal profession. This may be a challenging podcast for some, but it will reward those who listen with an open mind. Heather has taught, published, and trained on social justice issues since 1992, as a professor at St. Cloud State University in St Cloud, Minnesota, and full-time as a consultant since 2005. Now, she consults nationally on issues of deep diversity, equity, and social justice, especially racism and white privilege, gender oppression, heterosexism and homophobia, and classism.
