This week, Sheila Bair, the longtime Republican who chaired the FDIC during the fiscal meltdown five years ago, joins Bill to talk about American banks’ continuing risky and manipulative practices -- and their seeming immunity from prosecution. Also on the show, economist Richard Wolff returns to answer questions sent in by our viewers, diving further into the limitations of both capitalism and industry regulation, and the widening gap between a booming stock market and a population that increasingly lives in poverty.
