Michael Hudson — The Obama economic "dream team", Global Research News hour (MONDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2008)

GUEST: Michael Hudson has had a long, varied, and distinguished career as a Wall Street analyst, leading economist, expert on financial history, and Research Professor at the University of Missouri. He's also an author, consultant, and president of the Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends (INSLET).

Hudson is fiercely critical of the Bush administration's efforts to bail out Wall Street, reward the criminal elements that run it, hollow out America in the process, and hang the public out to dry.

The Obama economic "dream team" will be discussed and the likely way it will deal with the nation's greatest ever economic crisis.
