Moyers & Company [electronic resource]: David Stockman on Crony Capitalism

Can the financial crisis of 2008 happen again? In this edition of Moyers and Company David Stockman (The Triumph of Crony Capitalism) and Gretchen Morgenson (Reckless Endangerment) tell Moyers why they believe the U.S. economy is at risk, largely due to the cozy relationship between big business and the government. As one example of crony capitalism, Stockman points to Obama's choice of General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt to head up the new Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
