Elizabeth Warren: Law, Politics, and the Coming Collapse of the Middle Class

Elizabeth Warren - Conversations with History

Elizabeth Warren; Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law Harvard University

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren for a discussion of the economic pressures confronting the two income middle class family as it struggles to pay mortgages, health care, and education costs. Professor Warren offers surprising answers to "Who goes bankrupt and why?" and explores the role of banks and credit card companies in tightening the squeeze on the average American family. The interface between politics and the law in addressing these problems is explored.
