The Dow's up, but why are Main Street Americans still reeling from last year's economic collapse? With Americans still facing rising unemployment, foreclosures and declining property values, renowned economist James K. Galbraith speaks on whether we've averted another crisis and how to get help for the middle class. James K. Galbraith is the Lloyd M. Bentsen Jr. chair in government/business relations at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. Galbraith has authored six books, most recently "The Predator State: How Conservatives Abandoned the Free Market and Why Liberals Should Too." And, National Review senior editor Richard Brookhiser talks about his mentor William F. Buckley Jr. and today's conservative movement.
