Jim Wallis, editor-in-chief of "Sojourners" magazine, was on the Daily Show last night to talk about his new book, "Rediscovering Values on Wall Street, Main Street and Your Street." Wallis examines the economic crisis from the perspective of American moral values: "Underneath this economic crisis," he said, "I think there's a values crisis." He focused specifically on the morality of bank bonuses in the midst of crisis, and suggested that the people getting bank bonuses should "send them to Haiti." Wallis also encouraged people to move their money from big banks: "the banks say they're too big to fail, I say let's make them smaller," he said.
