Bob Scheer: The Great American Stickup
Listen to/Watch entire show:
When we think about the recession we're going through, the phrases "mortgage crisis," "Wall Street bailout" and "stimulus package" come to mind. But Robert Scheer has an explanatory theory, one with roots in the free-market mantra of the Reagan era and the financial de-regulation that took place during the Clinton years. Matt Miller hosts a conversation with Bob about his new book, The Great American Stickup: How Reagan Republicans and Clinton Democrats Enriched Wall Street While Mugging Main Street.
