Chris Hedges on Capitalism

Chris Hedges is one of those journalists worth listening to for his erudition, articulacy and integrity. The interviewer tries to argue that capitalism drives innovation that is lifting people out of poverty. Chris says that this is true for a ‘neo-feudal’ elite but that for the masses capitalism is a system that oppresses and makes their lives worse. He argues that people in the US are worse off than they were forty years ago.
