The Unwinding

Clip: 06/18/2013 | 12m 22s

A gas station owner in the South who becomes one of the strongest advocates for green energy. A one-time aide to Joe Biden-turned-lobbyist, who now says the system is hopelessly corrupt. Their stories--and a half dozen others--document what author George Packer says is a dissolution of American institutions. His latest book is "The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America."
