    Moyers & Company [#211H] What Has Capitalism Done for Us Lately? * Richard Wolff's smart, blunt talk about the crisis of capitalism on his first Moyers & Company appearance was so informative, we asked him to return. On this week's show Wolff dives further into income inequality, analyzing the widening gap between a booming stock market and a population that increasingly lives in poverty. Wolff also takes questions sent in from around the world by our viewers. Wolff taught economics for 35 years at the University of Massachusetts and is now visiting professor at The New School University in New York City. His books include Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism and Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It. < br />* Also returning is Sheila Bair, the longtime Republican who served as chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) during the fiscal meltdown five years ago. During that time, she warned the public and her colleagues about big banking's excesses and against the billions in "too big to fail" taxpayer bailouts. Bair joins Bill to talk about American banks' continuing risky and manipulative practices, their seeming immunity from prosecution, and growing anger from Congress and the public. Bair is the author of Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Protect Your Memory with Dr. Neal Barnard Nothing is more important than your health, family and loved ones. Your connections with other people, entire relationships, and everything your loved ones have ever meant to you could be entirely wiped out, if you run the risk of memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's disease, based on family history and lifestyle.
    In this program, Dr. Neal Barnard proves with groundbreaking research that there is in fact, lots you can do to protect your brain and memory! He dives into 3 simple steps you can take to derail the degenerative processes that could otherwise derail you and your memory: Skip "bad fat," Knock out free radicals, Exercise your brain. Dr. Barnard also warns against potential threats to the brain, including medications, drug interactions, sleep deprivation and physical conditions that can put your memory at risk.
    While research has led to clear answers about how to prevent lung cancer and reduce heart attacks, most people have absolutely no idea that it is possible to protect their memory, brain and connections with loved ones. Dr. Barnard provides viewers with the researched-backed information, giving them the power to protect their memory, beyond simply "waiting and seeing."
