What good is a minimum wage? Don’t we really want a living wage? At least that. We will talk this over and the implications of both types of wage.

Sunday on the Front Stoop – Should all debt be forgiven…world wide?

What do you think?  Should all debt be forgiven.  Not just bank debt and ‘too big to fail’ company or national debt.  All debt, individual debt – world wide.  What would be the result?  Maybe our flawed economies could benefit from a regular ‘reset’? http://storage.googleapis.com/bridges_programming_shows/Sunday-on-the-Front-Stoop-Should-all-debt-be-forgiven-world-wide4.12.15.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: iTunes | Android |… Listen In

Bridges Programming – Pay to Live World

There are very few things left that we do not pay for.  Let’s try to think what they are and what if you had to pay for them too.  Maybe you already do, in some way.  Why has this become accepted and considered normal?  Is our economics squeezing the life out of us? http://www.bridgesprogramming.com/shows/2015-03-20-BP-Pay_to_Live_World.mp3Podcast: Play… Listen In
