The Wrecking Crew: Thomas Frank on How Conservatives Rule

Fantastic misgovernment is not an accident.

Columnist and author Thomas Frank joins us to talk about his latest book, The Wrecking Crew.

Frank writes, "Fantastic misgovernment of the kind we have seen is not an accident, nor is it the work of a few bad individuals. It is the consequence of triumph by a particular philosophy of government, by a movement that understands the liberal state as a perversion and considers the market the ideal nexus of human society. This movement is friendly to industry not just by force of campaign contributions but by conviction."
