Bill Moyers Journal : Robert Reich on the Economy / Honoring Thomas Paine / Escalation of Gun Violence

In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers and Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Clinton, discuss capitalism, the economy, the influence of lobbyists on policy, and the ongoing debate over public healthcare. Moyers then marks the 200th anniversary of Thomas Paine’s death by talking with authors Harvey J. Kaye and Richard Brookhiser about how the ideals of this forgotten founding father still resonate and why Americans both left and right on the political spectrum claim him as their own. An essay on the escalation of gun violence in America and the urgent need for more, not less, gun control rounds out the program. Broadcast date: June 12, 2009. (56 minutes)
