    With the media buzzing over socialism in the Beltway, Bill Moyers sits down with "old-school socialist" Mike Davis for his critique of the government's response to the economic crisis and how he thinks it compares to Roosevelt's New Deal. Davis is a writer and historian who teaches creative writing at University of California, Riverside. Also, Bill Moyers talks with Marta Palaez, president and CEO of a domestic abuse shelter in San Antonio, Texas, - Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc., - for perspective on the human face of the economic downturn and how it may be pushing some families over the edge.
