Project Censored - 02.03.21

Although a new administration has taken office in Washington, the administrators of the world's wealth have not changed.
Project Censored presents a rebroadcast of "Giants: The Global Power Elite." Project Censored Show cofounder Peter Phillips returned to the show
as a guest in August 2018 to discuss his book about the 'transnational corporate class.' The product of years of research, "Giants" identifies
the institutions and individuals who manage trillions of dollars of assets, and wield the political might that such riches confer.
As the Biden administration takes charge, observers of politics might watch for representatives of the 'Giants' on the Biden team.

Notes:
 
Peter Phillips is Professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University in California.
He's also the retired director of Project Censored, and cofounder of the Project Censored radio show.
"Giants" is his 18th book, and is published by Seven Stories Press.
