AlterNet Radio: More GOPers In Congress=More Inequality; Yes, the Stimulus Worked; Schneiderman Goes After JPMorgan

This week on the AterNet Radio Hour, we speak with Bart Naylor -- a former investigator with the Senate Banking Committee who is now an advocate with Public Citizen -- about the lawsuit filed this week against JP Morgan. Still no perp-walks, but better than nothing.

The we're joined by Time Magazine correspondent Michael Grunwald to discuss his new book about the 2009 stimulus, The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era

Finally, we talk to Thomas Volscho, a professor of sociology at CUNY Long Island College. Volscho and a colleague are soon to release a study that shows a clear relationship between how many congressional seats the GOP holds and how much of the nation's pre-tax income the top 1 percent of households grab. The study also finds that this holds true regardless of which party occupies the White House.

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 4 pm EST at 1480 AM. If you're anywhere else, you can stream it live at We Act Radio, and if you miss it, check back later for a podcast. 

UPDATE: Here it is!
