Reforming the Financial System with Carter Dougherty

Wall Street is one of the largest contributors to our political system, and that translates into political power which often benefits the rich over the rest of us.

To discuss, we’ve invited Carter Dougherty to the show. Carter is the Communications Director of Americans for Financial Reform, a coalition of more than 200 civil rights, consumer, labor, business, investor, faith-based, and civic and community groups working to create an ethical financial system for everyone in America.
