Abstract Is the U.S. government turning socialist? In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with socialist historian and MacArthur Fellowship recipient Mike Davis for his critique of the government's response to the economic crisis and how he thinks it compares to FDR's New Deal. Moyers is also joined by Marta Peláez, president and CEO of Family Violence Prevention Services, who reports on the human cost of the economic downturn that is pushing more and more families over the edge. An essay on America's misdirected concern over the term "socialism" rounds out the program.
