Clips From Last Night: Did Greek monks cause economic collapse?

Michael Lewis, author of "Moneyball" and "Boomerang," was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" last night, and talked about baseball, Occupy Wall Street and more. He also told the story of how Greek monks may have caused complete economic collapse. "What caused the previous conservative government to fall was a scandal," he told Piers Morgan. "People estimate between 100 million and a billion, what the monks had actually made on the transactions." (Watch the full story above.)

Also on the show was musician and activist Harry Belafonte, who talked about Michael Jackson and his children:

Said Belafonte: "The way in which they were exploited...I don't know that celebrity is worth all that."

    MR. MORGAN,

    I BELIEVE MOST OF THIS COUNTRIES PROBLEMS COME FROM LOBBYING. WE KNOW HUMAN NATURE IS WHAT IT IS AND I BELIEVE MOST POLITICIANS DO WHATEVER THEY CAN TO SEE THE LOBBYISTS GET WHAT THEY PAY FOR.
    WITH THAT IN MIND COULD YOU PLEASE ASK SOME OF THE PEOPLE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT WHAT THEY CAN DO TO MAKE LOBBYING ANY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE OR OFFICIAL ILLEGAL?

    SINCERELY ,
    ARCHIE BOWEN

    Sadly we all agree our government is run by foreign lobbyist and we are supporting this occupied country by our tax dollars while our country is close to economical and moral collapse. We are fighting wars for the chosen group all over the world while our brave men and woman in uniform are being lied to returning home in body bags.
    Can we have all the names of all the policies makers and bankers who work for these lobbyist? Please demand all the names and their origin of allegiance.
    When will you invite Noam Chomsky ? If not why ?
