Stressing Over the Bank Stress Tests
May 7, 2009
On Wednesday, May 6, Nation columnist Naomi Klein appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show and provided context to the bank bailouts, which she called the "greatest heist in monetary history," and the economic crisis. "My real concern," says Klein in the interview, is that "the crisis on Wall Street created by deregulated capitalism is not actually being solved, it's being moved. A private sector crisis is being turned into a public sector crisis." Klein is author of The Shock Doctrine:The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and according to Rachel Maddow is "one of the most influential thinkers, anywhere."
