Evidence of Design

By Evidence of Design

Evidence of Design is a live call-in talk show about the political economy, namely the the relationship between our political choices and economic outcomes. This show investigates and critiques the political-economic ideology of neoliberalism, or the belief that a free-market, small government, privatization, and financialization are the best ways to run society. Generally lacking in public discourse is appropriate attention given to vastly unequal distributions of income and wealth. This show attempts to bring the inequalities produced by neoliberalism to the forefront. Join us in deliberation as we attempt to create the vocabulary necessary to understand how our world works, and as we endeavor to become active agents of change for a more just and equitable society.
