Splitting the Banana Market

               Bananas have been integrated in our diet as a staple food. Who doesn’t love to, at least, eat a banana in the morning or put a few banana slices into a good smoothie? Nonetheless, Bananas play a big part in the U.S diet. Let me pose this question to you, Reader: Do you know what it takes for Bananas to get to your supermarket, or the history behind the marketization of this fruit?

Digital Deception & Dark Money, with Ann M. Ravel

The term "fake news" is a little too tame, says Ann Ravel of the MapLight Digital Deception Project. Actually, this is foreign and domestic political propaganda aimed at undermining U.S. institutions and democracy. Maplight also tracks the enormous, pervasive problem of "dark money"--contributions by undisclosed donors to influence U.S. campaigns. Yet Ravel is optimistic that once Americans understand what's happening, it can be stopped.

Global Ethics Weekly: Helsinki, Singapore, & the Emerging Trump Doctrine

From the unprecedented Trump-Kim meeting, to what some call a treasonous press conference in Finland, to growing tensions between America and its closest allies, as well as its adversaries, this has been a historic summer for international affairs.
