Show information posted by producer,  Chloe Quiroga.  Tony will return from his two month absence when his wife gets home from the hospital (very soon).
First hour: the topic was retirement and financial matters. Chris Puffer was the first guest and did not have an introduction or questions as he is on the show often. We did have one in-call guest though and here is his information:
James B. Huntington has been a business professor, teacher, and professional speaker.  His 2007 doctoral dissertation is the only book written on career jobs for post-65 baby boomers.  He has also written on leadership, organizational change, and human development.  He has a B.A. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, an MBA from the University of Phoenix, and a Ph.D. in Applied Management and Decision Sciences from Walden University.
1.     You seem to have a liberal agenda.  Is that right?
2.     How do you know we won’t be back to four or five percent unemployment in a few years?
3.     Won’t government deregulation get us out of this?  The free market has always worked when allowed to.
4.     How can you say the lack of jobs is a problem for all Americans, when unemployment for college graduates is only about five percent?
5.     You say underemployment is a major problem.  Why, and what’s the solution?
6.  What do the Occupy protests have to do with the jobs crisis?
7.     The latest jobs report seems to indicate that we don’t have enough people in the highly skilled manufacturing jobs, meaning not enough supply.  Are we encouraging our children too much to go into unrealistic or unpromising careers, rather than careers that are either beneficial for society or that might be more available to them?
8.     Are you really that pessimistic about America’s future, or is this just a bunch of doomsaying similar to Glenn Beck?
9.     Wouldn’t it be a good idea for us to put in tariffs to protect American jobs?
10.  How have Americans been affected by the jobs crisis?
11.  Who would do better with jobs, Obama or Romney?
12.  Electricity, automobiles, and railroads have put many Americans to work in the past.  Why won’t things like that bail us out in the future?
13.  Why are conservatives an liberals both wrong about the jobs crisis?
14.  What could happen if we fail to realize the jobs crisis is permanent?
15.     How does guaranteed income differ from welfare, which most would agree didn’t encourage people to work?
