ARGENTINA'S ECONOMIC CRISIS:
FISCAL AUSTERITY, GENERAL STRIKES & THE IMF
Into its third year of economic crisis, the Argentine government of Pres. De La Rua is deciding to balance its giant budget deficit on the backs of the poor, government workers and retirees. With the unions pressuring on one side with frequent general strikes and the IMF on the other doling out bailout loans based on "fiscal responsibility", Argentina's crisis is being watched for its repercusssions on neighboring countries and the world economy.
We talk with Daniel Ximenez,
Director of the School of Labor Studies in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
THE POOR GETTING POORER
Is homelessness on the rise? We look at the
effects of the current recession, building on the
"heritage" of the Welfare Reform and Reconstruction
Act of 1966. And in Giuliani's New York City the
Shelter system is already overflowing.
Out guest will be Tim Casey
Attorney for the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund
