Moyers & Company
"On Winner-Take-All Politics"
How, in a nation as wealthy as America, can the economy simply stop working for people at large, while super-serving those at the very top? This weekend, in an encore broadcast of the premiere episode of Moyers & Company (check local listings), Bill Moyers looks deeper at America's economic disparity to investigate how it happened and who's to blame. His detectives: political scientists Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson, authors of Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer - And Turned Its Back on the Middle Class. Through exhaustive research and analysis, Hacker and Pierson - whom Moyers regards as the "Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson" of economics - detail important truths behind a 30-year economic assault against the middle class.
