Europe's Social Capitalism vs. America's Wall Street Capitalism: Which Has the Better Development Model for the 21st Century?

Steven Hill, Political Writer; Author, Europe’s Promise

Hill contends that a quiet revolution has been occurring in post-World War II Europe:  A world power emerging across the Atlantic that is rewriting the rules for how a modern society should provide economic security, environmental sustainability, and global stability. For a decade, Hill traveled widely to understand this uniquely European way of life, including its response to the current economic crisis.
