The interview begins this way:
PERIES: Michael, what do you make of this fast-track legislation?
HUDSON: It’s appalling. It’s so bad that when I try to describe it to professors who are not economists or to foreigners they can’t believe that there’s actually a law that is classified as secret. That the congressmen and senators can only read by making an appointment, reading in secret, without taking notes. That they will be accused under national security legislation if they tell anybody what it’s all about. It’s amazing, what is happening is of such a great magnitude, that people are not out in the streets.
