Ambassador Anthony Quainton, Mark Everson
Former ambassador Anthony Quainton from the School of International Service talks to Ralph a bout the Iran deal. And Ralph both grills and advises Mark Everson, who is running for president in the Republican primary about the IRS, tort reform and breaking up the big banks.
“The tendency — which has been around again for a very long time– to demonize our enemies, the whole “axis of evil” rhetoric makes it much more difficult to reach agreements in our mutual interests, because we are portraying the people we have to talk to as people who are so evil that no agreement is feasible or valuable. That’s not the way, in my judgment, to look at the world.”

“I’ve been surprised. Believe it or not, as I talk to people, it (breaking up the big banks and corporate crime) does not resonate as much as I thought it would, because people seem to be so cynical about the big businesses and the banks that when you talk to them about it, they really seem to assume nothing can be done about it.”
