PBS Frontline Details US Financial Fraud – ‘Money, Power, & Wall Street’


Concluding the PBS Frontline Money, Power, & Wall Street mini-series, the remaining episodes below take us from the market lows to the current euphoric highs.

Concluding last night’s post on the PBS Frontline “Money, Power, & Wall Street” mini-series, the remaining two episodes below take us from the market lows to the current euphoric highs. From Obama’s decision for more of the same on his economic team to the Stress Tests, from Larry Summers cavorting arrogance to the Public’s rising anger, these two ‘post-crisis’ episodes seem to have less revisionism than the first two and proceed beyond the US to Europe’s ‘hiding of the truth’ and whether the system can ever be truly reformed – not a pretty picture (especially with the mutually assured destruction argument already being played by the banks in their discussions with the Fed on Dodd-Frank today). No Blythe Masters’ pool-side this time but Larry Summers is always happy to please.
