    A look back with William Greider

 People of great wealth and their institutions like banks naturally have
the power to overwhelm people of lesser means. And you can’t allow that
in a decent society. It won’t survive.

Ugh, I hate using the the term "must see", but in this case it holds. No punches pulled, but not buried in hype and rants. Greider looks at the news behind the news, who really benefited from different bailouts, and calls the public to wake up and take things back. Although a self-admitted Obama fan, he explains his dissapointment with returning our financial system back to the ‘old ways’ and with even more corporate control.

That was pretty nasty. I agree, nothing we should or could have in a decent society. It’s all pretty infuriating.

For anyone who’s interested, I’ve worked out some of my ideas on this in a series of blog posts:
