RN Rear Vision - 26 October 2011 - Stirring the Pot: the Tea Party Movement in US politics

The Tea Party Movement and its contradictions: the story of a street protest movement with elite origins, a maverick movement with loss on its mind, an outsider group with insider claims, a non-political organisation with clear party connections. Did the Tea Party Movement come into being in February 2009? Or perhaps in response to the civil rights movements of the 1960s, or in the 1840s, or maybe during the French Revolution . . . And what of its claims to a connection to the Revolutionary War? As the US moves towards its 2012 Presidential Elections, the Tea Party Movement remains an influential not-quite-third-party force. On Rear Vision today, we try to get a handle on its origins. Guests: Jenny Beth Martin, Cofounder and National Coordinator, Tea Party Patriots Clare Corbould, Historian. Larkins Fellow, School of Philosophical, Historical & International Studies, Monash University Corey Robin, Associate Professor of Politics, Brooklyn College, New York.

RN Rear Vision - 14 September 2011 - Did defaulting rescue Argentina and could it work for Greece?

In 2001 Argentina announced it was going to restructure its international debt, thereby triggering the biggest default in history.
