Episode Description

Join us on this week's Capital Thinking with host Kevin O'Neill, who will be joined first by Douglas Jones and Barbara Simons, authors of the new book "Broken Ballots," and Sarah Vilms to discuss the challenges that plague modern electronic voting machines and suggestions on how to protect the voting system to improve accuracy. Next, our favorite budget analyst and author of the blog Capital Gains and Games, Stan Collender, will comment on recent budget issues and how budget concerns will play into the presidential election. Finally, back by popular demand: last week's segments with Deborah Lodge on recent actions taken by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to enforce consumer privacy. Deborah provided her analysis of the Commission's final report which gives consumers greater control over their personal data, and provides companies and regulators with fundamental principles for addressing privacy issues.
