In this edition of Moyers & Company, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Gretchen Morgenson tells Bill that five years after the country's economic near-collapse, banks are still too big to fail, too big to manage, and too big to trust. Stockholders' reaffirmation of Jamie Dimon as JPMorgan Chase's chairman and CEO-despite a year of accusations and investigations at the bank-is further evidence, she says, of an unchecked system that continues to covet profits and eschew accountability, putting our economy and democracy at risk. Morgenson also discusses how behemoth companies like Apple manipulate the system and avail themselves of the biggest tax loopholes money and influence can buy

The film spotlights fully modernized public transportation and recycling systems, a "Citizenship Street" zoning pattern that reduces high-volume traffic, an oil collection program that transforms used cooking grease into biofuel, and other successful initiatives.

This Prelinger Archives film shows how the American railroad system developed and illustrates the vital role of train transportation in the economy of the 1950s. With enthusiastic narration and patriotic music, the film presents high-energy scenes of railroad technology in action, from its rather primitive-looking original forms to the thundering diesel-pulled trains that captured the imaginations of 1950s youth. Two young children are at the center of the narrative, traveling cross-country in a sleeping car and learning all about the railroad's various uses--hauling passengers, agricultural products, manufactured goods, raw materials, even mail.
