    Bill Moyers talks with Robert G. Kaiser.

    Robert G. Kaiser has been following Beltway politics for The Washington Post for nearly 50 years. This week on the Journal, Bill Moyers talks with Kaiser about how our nation's Capitol has succumbed to lobbyists and turned government into big business. Kaiser is the author of "So Damn Much Money: The Triumph of Lobbying and the Corrosion of American Government." Bill Moyers sits down with Parker J. Palmer, founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal, for a conversation about maintaining spiritual wholeness even as the economy and political order seem to come apart.
