US Rep Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA) presents his bill to reduce the interest rates on student loans by allowing borrowers to refinance at the lower rates offered to banks by the Federal Reserve. He says that the costs will be offset by increasing corporate tax rates on companies that pay their CEO more than 100 times the median compensation of all its employees. How will this work? DeSaulnier explains the details of his plan to a group gathered at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Recorded on 10/05/2015.

Founded by the late Sally Ride, Tam O'Shaughnessy and three others to inspire young girls and boys to consider careers in STEM, Sally Ride Science is now housed at UC San Diego, offering opportunities for middle and high school students to embrace science in fun settings. Featured here is the Sally Ride Science Junior Academy, where students from throughout San Diego participate in creative workshops led by UC faculty and graduate students, along with the Tritons for Sally Ride Science, a group of UCSD undergraduates who are committed to carrying on the legacy of Sally Ride.

It's not often that the California State Treasurer makes national news, but that's exactly what happened when John Chiang suspended ties with Wells Fargo last year over the bank's creation of some two million fraudulent accounts. With its $75 billion portfolio, Chiang describes how California sets the example for holding partners to high ethical standards and for public investing in policies that lead to better lives for its residents, reductions in income inequality, and effective responses to climate change. Chiang is the 2017 speaker for Michael Nacht Distinguished Lecture in Politics and Public Policy presented by the Goldman School of Public Policy and the Berkeley Forum at UC Berkeley. Recorded on 09/18/2017.
