Jeffrey Winters, professor of Political Economy at Northwestern and author of "Oligarchy"

Host Cecil Prescod speaks with Professor Jeffrey Winters, author of the new book "Oligarchy," Winters says: "By choosing Wall Street as the origin of their action, and by focusing on the gap separating the 1% from 99%, the Occupy movement has hit upon the chronic problem of oligarchy and democracy in America. The power of concentrated wealth has overwhelmed and effectively disenfranchised the majority of American citizens. One person/one vote will be meaningless in U.S. politics unless the distorting power of wealth is addressed. Failing to do so could result in a deep crisis of legitimacy in American democracy."
