Today on The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - We are only two weeks into the New Year and for anyone who wants the United States economy to experience a truly robust recovery in 2015; the single biggest question  is whether pay raises will become more commonplace.  According to Neil Irwin the senior economics correspondent for The New York Times, where he writes for The Upshot, there were three pieces of news yesterday that point to yes.  He joins us today to discuss the new signs that American workers, especially at the middle and low end of the pay scale, may finally start having enough negotiating leverage to demand wage increases in excess of inflation.  You can also follow Neil on twitter.

4:35pm ET - For many years, numerous scholars have presented versions of the so-called “Historical Jesus”, from John Dominic Crossan’s view of Jesus as the wise sage, to Robert Eisenman’s Jesus the revolutionary, and Bart Ehrman’s Jesus as the apocalyptic prophet, but about the only thing these New Testament scholars seem to agree on is that Jesus did in fact exist historical.  But according to Raphael Lataster, a lecturer in religious studies at The University of Sydney and author of the new book There Was No Jesus, There Is No God, even that should be questioned.  Raphael joins us today to discuss whether the figure known as the “Historical Jesus” actually existed.
