This video from the USA is called Joseph Stiglitz on The True Cost of The Iraq War Part 1.

  1. From the USA:

    Dear Friend,

    Carly Fiorina often touts her business experience while she was the CEO of Hewlett-Packard but leaves out a very important part of her track-record.

    During Fiorina’s tenure, she laid off 30,000 workers and shipped their jobs overseas to India and China. All you have to do is listen to the voices of former Hewlett-Packard employees to get to know the REAL Carly:

    “After 21 years and 18 months shy of retirement, I was laid off?I lost about 50% of my retirement nest egg by believing what she was saying.” – Mike Angles, Laid-off Manager – Hewlett Packard

    “The layoff was very hard. We’ve gone from two cars in the driveway and all things you would need…and now we are trying to remodify our loan?a matter of fact, now we’re on food stamps.” – Susan Walsh, Laid-off Executive Assistant – Hewlett Packard

    Watch this video and tell your friends about Carly’s job killing record.

    And, check out the coverage in The New York Times.

    In these tough economic times, we need to bring jobs to the state, not ship them overseas because the labor is cheaper.

    Yours,
    Robert Greenwald and the Brave New Films team
