Our FEATURE today focuses on what The Myth Buster believes is a new phenomenon in America that has prospered under a massive ideological shift in the past eight years. Some refer to it as "corporatism" or "corporate cronyism". That is a too benign of a title for such a powerful and destructive force in our economy. We have termed the marriage of large corporate interests with government as "FASCISM" and support that characterization with events that occurred in Italy in the 1920s and thirties. Listeners will be amazed at how the term fits. Other topics include: The coming of a new cycle of technological innovation, the massive concentration of profits in the S&P 500, China's Silk Road, Janet Napolitano's latest scandal, the Mini Ice Age that's coming, the insect spy drone and Humpty Dumpty Comey takes a fall.
