i LOVE michael hudson i have bee reading him for over a year.

he is the financial adviser to dennis kucinich. 

if you listen to him you will get a head start on being a serf which means you will be ahead of the other serfs.

Re: Interview with Dr. Michael Hudson

Long interview and entirely worth it! I am not familiar with Dr. Hudson, I gather from the interview that he is coming from a classical Marxist perspective. I am not sure I would agree with his solutions but I do agree with his analysis and prognosis for the future, at least as much as I heard in this interview. Very, very insightful!

To digress from this thread a bit and not to distract at all from what I think is an interview everyone should listen to - I do want to add one minor point - he mentioned Rick Santelli's rant a few weeks ago and implied that Santelli was blaming the homeowners, at least partially, for the "crisis." I think that is where a lot of folks misunderstand. Santelli, and those who share his sentiment, weren't blaming homeowners - the rant was and is that taxpayer money (yours and mine) is being used, or should I say wasted, to bail out the follies of others. As I posted on this site back when Santelli was all the rage, the mortgage bailout plan was essentially a bank bailout plan.

Thanks for sharing this Linda K.
