"Things fell of a cliff when the 1970s began. That was the point where in America and in Britain we really embraced the culture of money, and what was of value from the previous decade was left behind. To me it became a bankrupt scene in our two countries........ You can't have a society where a $12m bonus is considered "not enough" by some people. The numbers drive you crazy."Excellent interview here in The Guardian with Art Garfunkel on being 70, support for the Occupy movement and the years of Simon and Garfunkel.
