On this week’s Moyers & Company, Rolling Stone writer and blogger, Matt Taibbi, and Yves Smith, creator of the finance and economics blog Naked Capitalism, discuss the nexus between Wall Street and Washington and how that’s killing democracy in the U.S.
Moyers will also interview Peter Edelman, who discusses what it will take to keep the needs of poor people on the American political agenda. Edelman’s new book is So Rich, So Poor: Why It’s So Hard to End Poverty in America.
Watch a preview here along with a time schedule for your local PBS. In the preview you’ll hear Taibbi say “vast criminality” — Smith links CEOs and corruption — Edelman says “screwed.” That ably sums up where we are.
