A Documentary We Love: Money, Power and Wall Street

Marie, Columbine Library

Money, Power and Wall Street is a FRONTLINE special originally shown on PBS about a year ago. In a special four-hour investigation, this documentary tells the inside story of the origins of the financial meltdown and the battle to save the global economy. It explores key decisions, missed opportunities, and the bailouts of financial institutions that citizens of the United States may not know about. These unprecedented moves by government officials and banking leaders have affected the fortunes and futures of millions of people worldwide in fascinating ways. The documentary ends with an exploration of the news rules and regulations that are currently under consideration. Will they be enough to fend off the next financial crisis?
