In his latest book, Jim Wallis argues that Americans should not seek out a return to "economic normalcy." Rather, we need to create a new "normal" that radically alters the behaviors and ways of thinking that lead to the current economic crisis. Join the Progressive Book Club and host Joe Conason for a talk with author Jim Wallis about creating a moral compass for the new economy.
