VIDEO: The Crisis of Credit
BY Jonathan Jarvis*
This video in combination with Naomi Klein's speech at University of Chicago, "Ideas have Consequences: The Wall Street Crisis Should be the End of Neoliberalism," work well together to help make sense of how ideology ("neoliberalism") and political-economic practice (the free market and its obsession with speculation) affect the well-being of everyday people. (Thank you to Seanne Thomas, an extremely conscious and conscientious realtor in the Twin Cities for sharing this! Seanne warned long ago that the housing "boom" would harm the futures of working poor people.)
