Program #NADR001. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on January 15, 1992.Ralph Nader spoke at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Plutocracy evolves as power concentrates itself when citizens neglect to exercise their civic power daily. Nader cites examples of plutocracy in the United States: the savings and loan rescue by the FDIC, secret defense contracts, and other forms of corporate welfare. The public assets that we own but don't control are never discussed, and we are unable to solve a myriad of problems that we shouldn't have. Nader proposes a communications commonwealth as a powerful step toward retaking control of our democracy.
