Rana Foroohar, "Makers and Takers"

Here's my conversation with Rana Foroohar, economic columnist and assistant managing editor for Time magazine, about her book, "Makers and Takers: The Rise Of Finance And The Fall Of American Business." Among the questions I asked her:
  • What is the "financialization of banking"?
  • Are the big banks still too big to fail?
  • What happened to the laws we were promised would fix this after 2008?
  • Is this a smoke-and-mirrors recovery?
  • Can we expect any of this to change under a Hillary Clinton presidency?
  • How bad is the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street?
  • Are companies more concerned with stock prices than research and innovation?
