In this week's DJ Sessions, we spoke with KCRW's Raul Campos about "southern fried soul" from Texas and a dance duo from Los Angeles.
Twelve years ago, Brooksley Born headed an obscure government agency in the Clinton administration, where she tried to regulate risky financial instruments like derivatives.
Wall Street was able to stand in the way and stop the regulations from going through, and derivatives ended up at the heart of the 2008 financial crisis that almost sank the world economy. We speak to Born’s former colleague, Michael Greenberger, about what lessons can be learned from Born’s work in the ’90s.
Throughout the week, Here & Now is looking at the impact a raise in the minimum wage would have on states, the federal government and workers.
