Will be speaking to guest Laura Gottesdiener. She is the author of A Dream Foreclosed: Black America and the Fight for a Place to Call Home. She just wrote the piece "When Predatory Equity Hit the Big Apple: How Private Equity Came to New York’s Rental Market -- and What That Tells Us About the Future", in which she writes, "Over the last few years, giant private equity firms have bet big on the housing market, buying up more than 200,000 cheap homes across the country. Their plan is to rent the houses back to families -- sometimes the very same people who were displaced during the foreclosure crisis -- while waiting for the home values to rise. But it wouldn’t be Wall Street not to have a short-term trick up its sleeve, so the private equity firms are partnering with big banks to bundle the mortgages on these rental homes into a new financial product known as 'rental-backed securities.'

First we have GREG MELLO. Mello is executive director of the Los Alamos Study Group, which just released the statement: "President Requests Unprecedented Spending on Nuclear Weapons Maintenance, Design, Production." They report: "The Department of Energy budget request (FY2015) includes a requested $8.315 billion for nuclear 'weapons activities' in the National Nuclear Security Administration, a semi-autonomous component of DOE. ... This is a 7 percent increase from the current year. The request is far higher, in constant dollars, than the $8.13 billion spent in 1985 for comparable work at the height of President Ronald Reagan’s surge in nuclear weapons spending, which was also the highest point of the Cold War."
