    Deja Vu? Some of our modern economic troubles might seem strangely redundant to members of the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Back then, there was much discussion among members about how to preserve the power of the wealthy against too much democracy. On this show, historian William Hogeland will provide insight into the original intentions and how the current power over our finance system was created. The struggles of toady go way back.
