This week's Moyers & Company begins with a report on striking extremes of wealth and poverty on display in California's Silicon Valley. Facebook, Google, and Apple are minting millionaires while the area's homeless -- who've grown 20 percent in the last two years -- are living in tent cities at their virtual doorsteps. These are the human faces of economic inequality. Later, Bill is joined by writer Sherman Alexie. Born on a Native American Reservation, Alexie discusses the challenges of living in different cultures at the same time, and shares his irreverent perspective on contemporary American life.
Bill Moyers (now retired) hosted a weekly hour of compelling conversation about the state of American democracy, featuring a range of scholars, activists, scientists, and newsmakers.
