Interview with CCTV America
(October 31, 2014)
Fadhel Kaboub, President of the Binzagr institute, was interviewed by CCTV America (10/31/2014) about the state of the U.S. economy. He argued that instead of trying to restart the engine of the U.S. economy, we need to change the engine all together. Kaboub explained that the current economic model perpetuates economic inequality. He suggested that the U.S. should invest in people and in jobs rather than tax cuts and trickle down economic policies. Kaboub proposed a federally-funded community development jobs program to hire unemployed members of local communities in order to assess and serve the needs of their communities.
