Mike Whitney takes apart Mitt Romney’s economic resumé, from his career as a corporate raider at Bain Capital to his fleeting, but disastrous, tenure as governor to his embrace of Paul Ryan’s austerity scheme; THE CIA BACK ON CAMPUS: David Price digs through piles of once secret documents showing how intelligence agencies and the military gained a foothold in academia. But who is resisting them now? THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF STANFORD: the women, the yachts, the secret bank accounts and gold-plated toilet seats. Jeffrey St. Clair chronicles the gluttonous lifestyle of ponzi-schemer Allen Stanford.
