On today’s show, Nomiki Konst first speaks with Ricardo Valadez about the various ways that private equity plays an enormous & oftentimes monopolistic role in virtually every facet of America, if not the world’s, economy, making it’s way into Federal legislation impacting everything from real estate to toy stores to healthcare and everything in between, as well as opportunities toward real reform after the Fall recess. Ricardo is the Private Equity Campaign’s Manager at Americans for Financial Reform which was formed in the wake of the 2008 crisis and is a nonpartisan, nonprofit coalition of more than 200 civil rights, consumer, labor, business, investor, faith-based, and civic and community groups.

Lee is a Research Fellow at the Center for Philosophy and History of Science at Boston University and in Instructor of Ethics at Harvard Extension School.
