We had a more serious set of interviews with Niall Ferguson posted last week, but simply due to the fact this one is with Colbert, just had to post it for entertainment value.  (as an aside the rest of the episode was actually quite enlightening as we saw how PACs are now working around limitations to how much they can contribute to a politician by running ads that have the politician in them but characterizing them as issue ads rather than political ads - its so corrupt as to amaze)

5 minute video - email readers will need to come to site to view.
