Can Capitalism Redeem Itself?

Is a better capitalism possible? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with John Perkins, author of Hoodwinked. He argues that the global financial system needs to be remade from the ground up. But where do we start in building a more just and sustainable system?

Join us live at 11 or send us an email at In a globalized economy, are the incentives for gluttony and graft simply too great? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

John Perkins, an economist and author. His best-known book is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

To blame 'capitalism' for the financial situation of the world is like asking, after a child is neglected or battered by their parent, "Can parenting redeem itself".

With capitalism, you cant throw the baby out with the bath-water. Because parts of the financial system, withint the capitalist system were rotten and because regulation failed to spot it and control it, does not give credence to any arguement to disband the whole capitalist structure. If that were a viable arguement, after Gary Glitter was found guilty of numerous paedophilia charges, the music industry as a whole should have been dismantled...
