Now some light-saber swings at "Capitalism" from Star Wars creator George Lucas. Interview and some video at CBS News here. Interview by Charlie Rose who is used to lobbing softballs at balanced budget advocate Pete Peterson on PBS where Peterson has made large donations over the years. Excerpt:
LUCAS: Well, I grew up in the '60s. I grew up in San Francisco. And so I'm informed in a certain kind of way about, you know, believing in democracy and believing in America. And I'm a very ardent patriot. But I'm also a very ardent believer in democracy, not capitalist democracy. And I do not believe that the rich should be able to buy the government. And that's just the way I feel.Lucas would be a great advocate to have on the side of MMT.
