New York, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2009
Paltalk, the leading real-time, video based-community with over 4 million active members will feature two time Emmy Award winning author Danny Schechter, on Paltalk's News Talk Online show, hosted by Gary Baumgarten.
Mr. Schechter, author of Plunder: Investigating Our Economic Calamity and the Subprime Scandal, successfully predicted the current US economic meltdown long before anyone else and is predicting yet another meltdown. He will discuss the current US financial crisis and how it is particularly affecting the emerging economies of Eastern Europe. News Talk Online participants are invited to interact and ask questions live on Wednesday, March 18 at 5 p.m. EST.
With over 30 years experience in journalism, writing, civil rights and the media, Schechter is an expert on media and society. Focusing on the current economic crisis on the upcoming News Talk Online show, Schechter will discuss his observations on the declining European economy and possible collapse. He believes that, as many Americans watch the news and discuss unemployment, inflation and the quest for economic justice, Europeans are taking to the streets in protest. According to Schechter, the news has focused on the economic crisis here in the United States while ignoring the faltering markets of emerging economies and Europe.
"Schechter predicted the economic meltdown in the United States," said Gary Baumgarten, host of Paltalk's News Talk Online. "What he says about the potential of total economic collapse in Europe warrants our attention".
