Bill Moyers Journal

Episode #1246

Who wins and who loses in the economic stimulus package? Bill Moyers talks with economist Robert Johnson, who decodes this week's news on the bank bailout, with a hard look at the international ramifications of the plan and a discussion of why nationalization has become a flash point. Johnson is former chief economist of the Senate Banking Committee, former managing director at Soros Fund Management, and currently serves on a U.N. Committee on International Financial and Monetary Reform. And, scholar John McWhorter weighs in on whether the U.S. is "a nation of cowards", as Attorney General Eric Holder suggests, on racial issues. [52 minutes] Closed Captioning
