How “Rule of Law” Foreign Aid Helps Big Business But Burns Consumers and Employees, with Jason Rathod [PODCAST]

In this episode, you’ll meet Jason Rathod.  Jason is a practicing attorney, but he also likes to write lengthy law review articles.  He’s written about how the United States uses foreign aid to impose our legal system on other countries, something we call “Rule of Law” aid.  Jason argues that “Rule of Law” aid actually only exports half of our legal system:  the part that is pro-business and pro-capitalism.  What is missing are legal protections for consumers and employees, and in particular mechanisms, like class actions, that Jason calls aggregate litigation.
