KPCC’s ‘The Pat Morrison Show’

By Robert Scheer

October 12, 2010

The fact that Wall Street crashed in 2008 is not news, nor is the consequent global recession. What may surprise you, however, is just how far back and how deep the connections that caused this great financial crisis actually go. According to investigative journalist Robert Scheer, it isn’t one political party that carries the blame. In fact, Scheer holds the feet of both Reagan and Clinton to the fire. From free-market Reagonomics propaganda to Clinton’s financial clique and a sobering look at where some of the responsible parties are now (I’ll give you a hint—it rhymes with Mixteen Bundred Stencilvania Ave.), Scheer tracks the meltdown back to the middle and around again.
