The second segment in this series aired last night on PBS. It is an excellent series, showing the value of investigative reporting versus the infotainment, cheer-leading so frequently aired today. Here is a direct link to the first hour May 1. I believe that this series clearly lays out the culprits, and the failures of the bankers and Bush administration. But is also lays much at the feet of the Obama Administration who have failed to effect the prosecutions and reforms needed. After all he swept to power on a campaign of change, and promptly protected and rewarded the usual suspects of the status quo.
The final chapter (2nd hour of last night) is also excellent and offers some important insight on the role of investment banks in creating the credit crisis in Europe and a legitimate impulse behind the Occupy movement. Here is a direct link.
