Summary
On Wall Street, private equity firms are buying up corporations and turning them around for huge profits-while America's economic disparities widen. Bill Moyers talks with maverick labor leader Andrew Stern, president of the rapidly growing Service Employees International Union, about the looming gap between working families and the wealthiest Americans. Also on the program: Writer, activist, and philosopher Grace Lee Boggs, a veteran participant in many of America's seminal civil rights struggles, discusses her belief that real change in government will come only from the grass roots. In addition, Bill Moyers delivers an incisive essay on truth, lies, and the sentencing of former Vice Presidential Chief of Staff Scooter Libby
