Kevin Phillips

Does Barack Obama’s victory mean a new and permanent political alignment in American politics? Bill Moyers speaks with Kevin Phillips about how America has changed since Phillips penned THE EMERGING REPUBLICAN MAJORITY 40 years ago.

excerpt:

Moyers: “The top one percent of households in this country saw their real income more than triple while the majority of labor of the labor force got virtually no increase at all in real wages over the last 35 years. How does the new administration turn that around?”
