The markets are crashing. The Federal Reserve is giving loans to big banks and big companies–what about small and medium business? Why cancelling student debt would boost the economy. Surveillance proposals in the coronavirus pandemic, including facial surveillance ripe for abuse. Righteous anger from Senator Sherrod Brown. And good stimulus proposals from Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Maxine Waters.

MENTIONED ON THE SHOW
