WMOX Agenda - February 28, 2012
o The debate over the distribution of income. What is the root cause of this? Is the cause different than the conventional wisdom?
o Gasoline prices reach a winter all time high. Is this issue old wine in new bottles?
o The Great Muddle through continues. Latest thoughts on the economic recovery including the truck index, the unemployment rate and other key measures. We will review the numerous statistics released recently and go through what it may mean. Are the somewhat optimistic forecasts for 2012 on track?
o Is the GOP waiting for Superman? Is Romney the last man standing? Or will he and the perhaps rising Santorum duke it out to the bitter end? Is Newt fading or does he have one last comeback?
o The role of religion in the public square. What does the seperation of church and state really mean?
o Liberals lack understanding of basic economics according to a recent study. Surprise?!
o A some book picks from the George W. Bush era. One, is President Bush's Decision Points. The second is On the Brink by former Secretary of Treasury Paulson on the financial crisis. The final one is Donald Rumsfeld, Known and Unknown. HBO recently released a docudrama, Too Big to Fail, about the bailout the Panic of 2008.
o A couple of other books on the list, Crash Course by Paul Ingrassia on the automobile industry and Grand Pursuit: The Search for Economic Genius by Sylvia Nassar.
o College Hoops is cranking up with conference play under winding up before the madness begins. Bubble watch and bracketology and cranking up for real. Looks like another UNC v. Dook showdown for the ACC regular session is brewing.
o What ever listeners which to talk about.
