FRONTLINE | Money, Power and Wall Street

In this special four-hour investigation, FRONTLINE will tell the inside story of the struggles to rescue and repair a shattered economy, exploring key decisions, missed opportunities, and the uneasy and unprecedented partnership between government leaders and titans of finance that affects the fortunes of millions of people around the world.

Beginning April 24th on PBS FRONTLINE. Here's the trailer -


  1. Not as compelling as The Warning, but worth watching.

    Some things you may want to ask yourself while watching the first two episodes -

    1. Why haven't any of the people in this documentary ever been criminally-prosecuted?

    2. Why didn't any of the people interviewed that held decision-making positions ever use the word "we" when assigning responsibility?

    3. Why was Presidential-candidate Obama given the privilege of being briefed about what was going on, but Presidential-candidate McCain was left out of the loop?

    The final two episodes begin on May 1st.

  2. Finished watching the last two parts yesterday. Believe whatever you will about the third episode, but it's just pure bullshit and political spin to me. It was hard to sit through.

    Episode-4 had some good interviews of past Wall Street enablers and got to the morals of the story and the lessons learned, and not learned, from the crisis.
