ON DEMOCRACY, FINANCE, AND DEBT

This is a great video (H/T Barry Ritholtz). It features an interview with Michael Hudson, a professor at University of Missouri, Kansas City. He's a former Wall St. insider, and he served as Chief Economic Advisor for Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 presidential campaign, also holding the same position in Kucinich’s Congressional campaign. Hudson speaks about debt, oligarchy, democracy, and historical antecedents to our economic woes.

That is a great video, Mike. Thanks for sharing. I don't get over to Ritholtz as often as I'd like to.

Someone needs to get this guy some face time with Obama (assuming he can be convinced that the course he's on is the wrong one).

Obama is a mainstream Democrat, of the Bill & Hill school.

There's NO WAY he'd allow himself to be associated with a Kucinich man. Ain't happening.
