Moyers & Company [electronic resource]: Taming Capitalism Run Wild

Public Affairs Television (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Even as President Obama's talking points champion the middle class and condemn how our economy caters to the very rich, the truth behind modern American capitalism is a story of continued inequality and hardship. Even a modest increase in the minimum wage - as suggested by the president - faces opposition from those who apparently pledge allegiance first and foremost to America's wealthy and powerful. Some, however, aren't just wringing their hands about our economic crisis; they're fighting back. In this edition of Moyers & Company, economist Richard Wolff joins Bill to shed light on the disaster left behind in capitalism's wake and discusses how to battle for economic justice. Wolff has written many books on the effects of rampant capitalism, including Capitalism Hits the Fan.
