We discuss cartels and trust-busting in these days of algorithms engaged in ‘horizontal collusion’ and ‘conscious parallelism.’ We look at the health care industry that is exempt from the Sherman Antitrust Act and what future it portends in a day of big data monopolies, oligopolies and cartels. In the second half, Max interviews activist and author, David DeGraw, about Russell Brand’s Revolution, the Occupy movement and about his new book, “Freedom in a time of mental slavery.”
UPDATE from Stacy: Ugh, one sees how abuse by Ofcom leaves broadcasters like quivering little babies afraid to offend even one person. At 11.23 Max says ‘farts’ which is, for some reason bleeped. I then had funny response to which he responded hysterically. I will post you the full uncensored version on Monday.
