The roots and remedies of the financial crisis
This, to me, is a "must watch" news segment. Unlike all the short-term finger pointing (and short term proposed fixes), Leo Panitch has the background knowledge to put the pieces together starting back in the 1960s. He talks about the actions of presidents in both parties since that time and how each side's actions kept building the house of cards that just fell down. He also talks about what needs to be done next.
Leo Panitch is the Canada Research Chair in Comparative Political Economy and a Distinguished Research Professor of Political Science at York University in Toronto. Panitch is also the author of "Global Capitalism and American Empire" and his most recent release "American Empire and the Political Economy of International Finance".
