The Politics and Economics of Battlestar Galactica

Concurring Opinions continues their interview with Battlestar Galactica creators Ron Moore and David Eick. In Part II of their interview, they explore the political and economic system that develops among a civilization on the verge of destruction:
In Part II of our interview, Dave Hoffman interviews Ron and David about politics and the economy. How did the political system of the Twelve Colonies work prior to the cylon attack? After the destruction of the colonies, how does the economy work aboard the fleet? Why do people still continue to do their jobs without compensation? How does commerce work? Why do people still use money? Dave examines these fascinating questions and more.

Part II of the interview is 13 minutes, 57 seconds long.
