This segment originally aired on the July 20th, 2014 episode of Ring of Fire on Free Speech TV.

Some of the top economic minds were warning regulators that the economy was heading towards a complete collapse before the meltdown of 2008. And today, some of those same folks are warning us that our lack of effort is leading us down the same path towards financial ruin.

America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio talks about this with Thom Hartmann, progressive talk show host and author of the new book The Crash of 2016.
