Nomi Prins and Michael Hudson were guests on Democracy Now! yesterday to talk about the latest corporate bailout of AIG. They both gave great insight into the situation and helped me understand this complicated problem better. Hudson probably gave the best single sentence summary I've heard when he said,"The economy is being sacrificed (by the government) to pay the gamblers." Link here. The interview starts at 10:20.
What makes this interview even more enjoyable is that Michael Hudson sounds a lot like Wallace Shawn. So if you close your eyes, it sounds like Amy Goodman is interviewing Vizzini from The Princess Bride.
