    On today’s episode of Double Down, hosts Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert are joined by economist, Dr. Michael Hudson of michael-hudson.com, to discuss the stupid economics behind each of the two US presidential candidates.

    Of the citizens of the declining Roman empire, it was said: “Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt.” So true is this of all such citizens of declining empire that every four years American presidential wannabes even promise revolution but know that the voter will ask only for more bread, circuses and…  taco bowls. Dr. Michael Hudson joins Double Down to talk about the economic reality behind the Trump voter and about whether or not, as it is claimed, Hillary Clinton is the ‘most progressive’ candidate in Democratic history.
