People looking for drama in Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf’s Senate testimony on Tuesday did not come away disappointed – even if he did not crack on the stand and admit everything like the villain in a Perry Mason episode.

Here are seven concerns, and seven sets of questions, that should be posed to Stumpf – either at Tuesday's Senate Banking Committee hearing or as part of a more rigorous investigation.
One candidate offers actual policies and proposals. The other offers entertainment. Which one does the "news" media flock to? Which candidate is receiving the news coverage — the policy wonk or the entertainer? We all know the answer.
Trump says his tax cuts would cost $4.4 trillion over 10 years, most of it paid for by economic growth. We’ve been here before. Both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush tried “trickle-down” economics. We should have learned two lessons.
Let’s call the whole thing off. Not the election. No, we mean the presidential debates — which, if the present format and moderators remain as they are, threaten an effect on democracy more like Leopold and Loeb than Lincoln and Douglas.
Should Democrats present themselves as fighters for a transformative economic vision, or as skilled managers restoring and maintaining the status quo of the last several decades? The question came up again last week.
Trump’s so-called economic fixes for the nation’s majority – women – are woefully lacking. His proposal to slash the top tax rate would definitely benefit high income women earning more than $413,350. But what of their low-wage sisters?
After Hillary Clinton went a bit wobbly at the 9/11 memorial, the internet went off the deep end with speculation about her health, and whether she’s even the real Hillary Clinton.
Wells Fargo has just been hit with the biggest banking consumer fraud penalty ever. Yet the bank’s execs are walking out the door with multiple millions in bonuses. Can we stop them?
President George W. Bush tried to grow the economy by giving corporations and the wealthy lower taxes and less regulation, and sparked a global economic meltdown. Trump would do it all over again.

Thousands of Native Americans at Standing Rock in North Dakota are protesting a pipeline project that puts their water supply at risk, threatens to plow up their sacred sites, and would worsen climate change.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump's full-throated support for school choice is the ill-conceived, grandiose, and politically polarizing gesture that many charter school proponents feared most.

This weekend we learned that Hillary Clinton has been doing something that millions of other Americans also do: going to work sick. The difference is that too many American workers don’t have much of a choice.
The Census Bureau data shows that despite a slow and unsteady recovery, wages are recovering well and small business owners are in their strongest position to thrive in over a decade.
President Barack Obama notes that he was able to cut greenhouse gas emissions without legislation from Congress establishing a carbon cap. This is true, but not it's not the full story.
Wall Street, the multinational corporations and President Obama are pushing for a vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership after the election. Wednesday, September 14, is a national call-in day to Congress to stop this.
Trump claims he’s told Americans all they need to know about his finances. But after this whole Bondi affair, it’s probably better to go with a version of the Reagan admonition when dealing with the Trump tax returns: distrust and verify.
Chalk it up to a culture of criminality ... Bank executives need to understand that the public’s anger is deep – and justified. If Democrats like Hillary Clinton are smart, they will grasp the depth and rationality of that anger.
The world’s first great analyst of management urged us to limit the gap between CEO and worker pay. We didn’t listen. How many more life-threatening scandals like EpiPen must we have before we do?
"Day of Action" events around the country will protest construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, while a petition drive calls for a broader halt to oil extraction.
Wisconsin's privatized "jobs creation agency" is subsidizing corporations as they outsource jobs from the state. For the workers who remain, the threat of outsourcing causes their wages to fall.
The rush to close more schools and embrace school closings is a perverse approach to "school improvement," with the hugely negative effects on students and communities.
The religion of inequality – of money and power – has failed us. The truth of our country is in the moral compact implicit in the preamble to our Constitution: we’re all in this together.
If Donald Trump wasn’t the Republican nominee, what would it take for his words and actions to be labeled treason? In fact, why does no one dare call it treason?

Native Americans from tribes all over the country are protesting the construction of a crude-oil pipeline slated to snake through sacred sites and under the water supply for the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
The confrontation over the Dakota Access Pipeline challenges President Obama, the Democratic candidate who is seeking to succeed him, Hillary Clinton, and Congress to be clear whose side they are on.
