3:08 am
and more bought cheap. there are people who work but when they get to the end of the month they're in extremism perhaps that's why these people are here and will keep taking these measures just have a look at them some of them while do the excitement as they feel that the momentum of this movement is still building official figures suggest only between five and six thousand people who are out in protest on friday but people say that's because many people are at work and they can't be out at the protest every day for the moment it looks like things are heating up being an hour late the last few nights there have been barely a huge number of schools she's between the police and the protest is and yet again it seems like the heat is on as this protest goes into this said. every night in the eight day. agin kalai. hillary clinton defended her suggestion that europe needs to curb mass immigration
3:09 am
to prevent the election of populist leaders critics saying it's hypocritical to fight populism with what to them looks like populism they also note that the refugee crisis was in part created by foreign military interventions as peter all of our investigations former u.s. secretary of state and twenty sixteen presidential candidate hillary clinton has been having her say on the state of liberal democracy in europe she says the e.u. nations need to cap immigration if they're to halt the rise of the populists i think europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lead the flying i admired the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken europe must send a very clear message we're not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support if hillary clinton is correct and immigration is the root of the popularity of the populists let's have a look it's where those refugees and migrants have come from and why they came to
3:10 am
the european union well the top three nations of origin for asylum applicants to the e.u. since twenty fourteen syria iraq and afghanistan all of those countries that have been bombed or in some way to stabilize by the united states and their allies in nato. currently one of the main routes into europe for refugees and migrants is the dangerous mediterranean sea crossing from libya a nation that was plunged into chaos following the nato intervention that took place on mrs clinton's watch we came we saw our baby died. apparently politicians couldn't have forseen people. start fleeing in their thousands since they were bringing democracy and the new promise for the future we are standing with the people of libya. bank yesterday.
3:11 am
and get out these domination of libya so freedom from developing country and when refugees did start arriving they told the europeans not to worry those who flee means even more political oppression there we have the responsibility to help lambing the door on every syrian refugee that is just who we are the rise of populous parties is also a major concern for those at the very top of the e.u. tree liberal democracy has never been to such attacks since the collapse of the soviet union it's all well and good for hillary clinton and like minded e.u. politicians to say that they are concerned about a rising popular ism in the e.u. but when they say that the way to stop this is to clamp down on refugees and migrants it comes across as more than just a little bit hypocritical especially when they had a direct hand in making those people refugees in the first place she directly
3:12 am
contributed to this rise in populism it was under her rule so to speak under the obama administration that libya was bombed into the stone age. supposedly to promote democracy and created a failed state is in direct effect from what she did in office but europe isn't just being told that migration is a bad idea transfer and have also been criticized from across the pond in case you missed it plenty boyko takes a closer look at the french german idea of a european military force which has upset washington in case you missed it here talking about building up again. and. and i'm going to not have written breezily outlining their plans to dominate continental europe the french president declared that it's a friend said a german responsibility to prepare as the reef ound ng of europe i'm sure that the
3:13 am
other twenty five union members have nothing to worry about i'm sure that the plan that much less nineteen thirty z. in the original french at least this time paris and berlin all working together the german chancellor she won't run in another election can finally say what she actually wants and she really was a real true european army isn't it lovely how europeans have mature because no one is running for the hills grieving to hearing a german leader say that well i won from grissom who can't wait to get out and seeing eminem's plans friends it may finally live like a good idea of course looming in the room is a rather large number are under brother nato which has been in charge of making sure that europe doesn't hasa look after itself for the past seventy years behind
3:14 am
very specific to the part played by the time you start a war does not like the sound of it you're in. trouble kids from his french kissing buddy rather well breaking out the classics you'd be speaking german if it wasn't for. the crimes written colby idea of a european army to undermine nato crazy so let are we stand european nations don't like being told they morph a nation a say they plan a whole new army of their own which will cost more than outsourcing to the us marines i am usually the us once europe to do more to defend itself as long as it doesn't when you need to detect it well i'm britain moans about the threat to nato unity he couldn't quite join. escape european unity and. fight anyway micron is worried about china and russia and that you accept that

3:18 am
enemies which he was killed in the saudi consulate in istanbul last month riyadh has denied any awareness of the orchestrated killing and has launched an investigation charging eleven officials. investigates. no significant action will be taken against saudi arabia for the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi trump says they are significant allies so we have to give them a pass now many prominent democrats and republicans disagree the language that was used it was as if they were writing a press release for the saudi arabia not for the united states it is certainly testing the proposition that the enemy of our enemy is our friend our friends don't murder journalists but in response to his critics trump has a pretty solid rebuttal maybe the world should be held accountable because the world is a vicious bush and there you have it us middle east policy in a nutshell in order to maintain your allies put your moral principles aside it's
3:19 am
not just saudi arabia back in twenty seventeen the u.s. secretary of state blocked all aid to egypt and since then they've admitted that the human rights situation is getting even worse but now aid has started flowing once again and trump has had glowing words for president el-sisi relationship has never been stronger. we're working with egypt or these different fronts including the military and free agent whatever you can we're working. we're going to be great and it's an honor to be with you. and how about qatar a long time u.s. ally that's not exactly a human rights paradise probably used to say that they were sponsoring terrorism the nation of. unfortunately has historically been a funder of terrorism. at a very high level the palestinian organization known as hamas designated by the u.s. state department as a terrorist organization is quite open about receiving qatari support however
3:20 am
washington and doha are cozy we're working very well together and i think it's working out extremely well so amir thank you very much for being here. now the same thing is true for nato member and long time u.s. ally turkey the usa hasn't stopped them from going after the kurds and u.s. allies in the fight against islamic state in syria so from the words of paul in a little flat yes please mr kurd we're trying to get along very well we do get along great with the kurds we're trying to help them a lot to great people and we have not forget we don't forget i don't forget what happens some day later but i can tell you that i don't forget these are great people ok for a long time it seemed like cable news had most americans convinced that foreign policy was about lofty ideals like writing freedom and overturning dictators but it seems now that most americans realize that that's not the case at this point it
3:21 am
seems pretty clear that u.s. foreign policy is about taking care of your friends no matter how shady they might be it does seem if you're critical of some ways that the united states preserves democracy promotion for its enemies but has been the trend in the past it's still the most powerful country but it can't do what it used to do i mean nine hundred fifty three for example we were able to overthrow. sit down in the iranian government for three million dollars today we're spending billions of dollars on sanctions on trying to affirm up other countries and we have under we have not been succeeding in overthrowing the islamic republic and that's a sign of it is growing you know that there are other competitors out there. we are not robots that's the rallying cry of disaffected amazon employees across europe on black friday as they staged a protest against what they describe as inhuman working conditions in the online
3:22 am
retail giants warehouses imus on workers in the spanish capital demanded better conditions and salaries all over america they protested against plans to open a new amazon headquarters and demos were also held in france germany italy and the u.k. and one trade union through its weight behind the protesters with the following video . and this story we. don't know. why amazon has over half a million employees worldwide including a quarter of a million in america then at minimum wage it pays and now it's twelve dollars in europe and fifteen dollars in america the company recently increased its minimum wage in the us after work has protested off of the black friday protests and was on for its part tonight it's exploiting its workers saying that it provides a safe and positive workspace with competitive pay and benefits
3:23 am
a labor rights lawyer told us amazon is susceptible to work and consumer pressure we see in the united states that because of bad publicity and some calls by people like senator bernie sanders amazon raised its wages to fifteen dollars an hour from about twelve dollars an hour so we see that they aren't. i don't hold or pressure look it's a consumer oriented business and so particularly if consumers are willing to put pressure on them they will change their way but also again people do care about working conditions of others in the pay of others and i think people are realizing that while jeff bezos is making the many many millions of dollars and his people are working in prison my conditions it just isn't acceptable. i don't know rights activists have been accused of headed thinking off the calling for the english town
3:24 am

3:27 am
place the form of virtue if you look at any interrogation out there what you'll see is promise threat promise threat lie a lie a lie the process of interrogation is designed to put people in just that frame of mind make the most comfortable make them want to get out and don't take no for an answer don't accept their denials. he said therefore would cooperate so i stayed there i would be all about that the next day there's a culture on accountability and police officers know that they can engage in misconduct that has nothing to do with all the crime.
3:28 am
this is boom bust broadcasting around the world and covering the world of business and finance i'm part children in washington d.c. today we welcome you to a special edition of food bust if we focus on the great recession which is now a decade in our rearview mirror we'll look at the causes of the calamity and what went down on that rough and rocky road to ruin and how it incredibly impacted the u.s. the eurozone and the rest of the world plus we'll look at where we are now how safe are we from another monstrous economic meltdown and what might be the next point and crisis ready let's go we start with bill clinton a democrat who was u.s. president and his financial policies clinton nomics which began in one nine hundred ninety three when he took office and lasted until he left in january of two thousand and one he started following the single term of george herbert walker bush a republican now known by many as bush forty one or simply forty one president
3:29 am
clinton was handed a growing economy from bush forty one with annual gross domestic product g.d.p. rate of three point five percent the good economy was however partially premised upon years and years of increasing spending and rising us budget deficits clinton nomics sought to keep the economy going while balancing the deficit and with the help of. congress which was then controlled by democrats legislation was passed to increase taxes on the wealthy furthermore defense spending was cut from five point two percent of g.d.p. one thousand nine hundred ninety to just three percent in two thousand the house passed the tax increase without a single republican vote that vote was particularly difficult for democrats after bush forty one has popularized this phrase. push and i'll say no and they'll push again and i say to them read my lips ah and candidates for congress were asked to
3:30 am
take no new tax pledges and while the bill passed it cost many democrats their election in one thousand nine hundred ninety four republicans won control of the house and clinton nomics faced tougher hurdles in congress clinton was first kept the us economy moving along in addition to policies put in place like welfare reform and free trade deals such as the north american free trade agreement and significantly financial deregulation was taking place within the clinton administration and then through the nine hundred ninety nine gramm leach wiley law which repealed the glass steagall act a law enacted the in one nine hundred twenty nine after the stock market crash as banks were being destroyed during the great depression the last stigall importantly separated investment banking from commercial banking the concern was the improper speculating role commercial banks were playing.
