Beyond the Hero’s Journey: Civilization and Its Discontents

In this interview on “Democracy Now” Matt Taibbi speaks to the institutional, intertribal goo that clings to big corporate cases and their prosecutors and is abetted by the chokingly anxious confusion that the public – that’s you, me and everyone we know – still feels about BBF: Big Bank Fraud.

It’s not enough that we get ‘The Insider’ once a decade or that we have to rely only and forever on Michael Moore to get these stories out to wide audiences. A good start to telling these stories lucidly enough to help the public stay alert in the jury box is Matt’s Book, a worthwhile companion to Piketty.
