Progressive Solutions playlist for 11/08/2016

OUR SHOW tomorrow tuesday; 1-3PM will NOT focus on this disastrous election unless Elizabeth Warren picks Bernie for running mate and pushes Clinton aside at the last minute. We will find plenty to talk about however.

Our featured guest is Bradley Birkenfeld, the author of Lucifer’s Banker: The Untold Story of How I Destroyed Swiss Bank Secrecy. In 2005, he detonated his thriving career with Credit Suisse, Barclays Bank and UBS by revealing unprecedented information on bank-enabled tax fraud to U.S. authorities. His testimony was instrumental in proving that megabank UBS enabled ultra-wealthy Americans to commit massive tax fraud. As a philanthropist, he now supports whistle-blowing initiatives worldwide.

I will do an opinion piece on the concept of the middle ground.

We will hear opinions of listeners as well as experts and analysts. So call in when Im off mic at 631.632.6901. Also, Steve Wiehe will check in with his usually sane take on current events.
