I Was a Pushcart Peddler, Ph.D.
Program #ZINH040. Recorded in Ithaca, NY on April 04, 2001.
Recorded at Cornell University before a large audience in 2001, Howard Zinn is at his exuberant best. His sense of humor is mixed with a sharp intellectual critique. He says: "There's no free marketplace of ideas anymore than there is a free marketplace of goods. People talk about the free market. There's no such thing. Every market is dominated by those people who have the power and wealth to dominate it. That's true of goods, and that's true of ideas. The market place of ideas is not free. It's dominated by the people who control the educational system, own the media and publish the textbooks. All I was doing was wheeling my little pushcart into the marketplace. I was a pushcart peddler, Ph.D." His talk is followed by an excellent Q&A.
