Dear Friends:

It has been a while since I sent out a notice for my program and even longer since I sent one out for a new show instead of a rerun. However, over the last several years, I have done a few interviews, but, often, events overtook me and inspiration to edit eluded me.

However, I now am faced with the fact that I may be down to my last three broadcasts as MNN will no longer accept VCR or 8MM tapes as of mid-December (something I think defeats the entire purpose of so-called "public access.") Thus, unless I can find the money to buy new mini DV cam equipment including anything I need to use to edit with it and learn to do so before then, this may be the end at least for the time being.

Anyhow, I am pleased to present a program of an interview I did in Paris in the summer of 2007 with former Wall Street economist and inventor of the Hollywood Stock Exchange, Max Keiser of Karmabanque, Al Jazeera and Resonance FM. Max is fast becoming a legend outside of the U.S. and in financial and political power circles here in the U.S. as a financial insurgent or "financial freedom fighter" as he likes to put it, through his analysis of the market via his sources on the inside and his adept studying of the financial papers.

In this program he discusses his views on how to approach and execute (as he and his friend Reverend Billy have done) targeted boycotts of multinational corporations...and how not to do so. He explains the role of his website in this regard.

You can also find out more about what he is doing here.

Although I do not agree with Max's perspective on every point, his way of combating corporations is truly unique and his perspective on what the left and other folks must do to regain some control over the plutocrats is ignored at our peril.

My program can be viewed on any high-speed computer anywhere or on TV in Manhattan this Wednesday, November 7 at 7:30 PM (Eastern Standard Time), on my shoestring cable show Famousx2, on Channel 67 if you are in Manhattan and have access to Time Warner. On the RCN system, that should be Channel 85 or thereabouts these days.

If you are outside of Manhattan, anywhere in the world, and you have a decent high-speed connection on your computer, you can go to http://www.mnn.org and click on channel 67 to see it at the same time. Friends in France and Holland should note that we are now back on EST time here in NYC, so probably the program will be at 1:30 AM Thursday morning for you.

Sometimes MNN does screw up broadcasts, but usually they air things without too many problems.....Be patient if it screws up for awhile.

Best,
Jason Howard

"financial insurgency"-- heh.

As usual, I expect a full review from you Bob!

Bob Hoeppner said...

Hah! Well, I'd hate to not live up to your expectations, Dana... I may not be able to watch it live, but I should be able to catch it if it's put into their video archive.

I checked out his website. Very intriguing concept.

Stacy said...

I am in Doha at the moment, so won't be able to watch it live. I am watching quite a few US fighter jets flying overhead today. Don't know what's going on, but perhaps there will be a more interesting live story coming from here later!

I hope it turned out okay . . . the Jason/Max film that is.

Here is a great piece in today's paper about the toxic US debts now totaling ONE TRILLION - - - as I believe Max predicted in Jason's interview with him

Okay, on my way to Abu Dhabi in the morning.

See ya!

Doesn't look like it made it to the archive. At least not yet.

Dana Herbert said...

It don't think it's going to the archive. Jason is going to try to put it up on youtube, and if he is successful, I will put it on my blog.
