I know Michael Hudson’s work and have a high regard for his scholarship and candor.
I strongly urge you to read this interview, Debtor Nation – The Hijacking of America’s Economy, that appeared in the January, 2008 issue of ACRES, USA. In it, Hudson has some startling things to say about the American economy, how the United States behaves in the world, and the candidates in the upcoming presidential election.
You can also find some interesting audio files at his website. — t.h.g.
