From this Jan. 12, 2012 "Remaking America: From Poverty to Prosperity", which was held at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium.

CNN had a corporate modified debate on what's wrong with America's economy and capitalism during their show, Your Money this weekend. Here's a more honest one most Americans will unfortunately never watch and I thought I'd share just the end of it here and if it interests you, go watch the entire two and a half hours plus on C-SPAN's site here -- Poverty to Prosperity With Tavis Smiley.

The panelists included Majora Carter, Roger Clay, Barbara Ehrenreich, Vicki Escarra, Michael Moore, Suze Orman, Tavis Smiley and Cornel West.

Part one above with Roger Clay and Vicki Escarra is the first segment above.

Here's part two with Suze Orman.

And the most fiery finish by the guests on the panel is below the fold with Majora Carter, Barbara Ehrenreich, Cornel West and Michael Moore wrapping things up.
