Have recently started subscribing to Bill Moyers Podcast via iTunes. Perfect hour for my usual 3 1/2 mile walk.  Heard a very interesting conversation with James Galbraith (son of John Kenneth Galbraith) on our current economic crisis.

Galbraith argues that modern America has fallen prey to a wealthy, government-controlling “predatory class”:

Today, the signature of modern American capitalism is neither benign competition, nor class struggle, nor an inclusive middle-class utopia. Instead, predation has become the dominant feature — a system wherein the rich have come to feast on decaying systems built for the middle class. The predatory class is not the whole of the wealthy; it may be opposed by many others of similar wealth. But it is the defining feature, the leading force. And its agents are in full control of the government under which we live

Don’t stop there though as Moyers follows up with an interview with Mark Johnson and his ambitious Playing for Change:Peace through Music project. Some great music there. Moyers is easy to listen to – worth subscribing to.
