Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The spotlight once again falls on the "too big to fail" debate. JPMorgan Chase has now lost $3 billion and counting. Has the financial industry learned nothing since 2008? We talk to one lucky guy who won $51,000 in a gameshow. He'd better not forget Uncle Sam's piece of the jackpot. And whatever you do, if you Yahoo, don't do what the company's CEO did. We learn why you don't want to pad your resume. Plus, meet the latest breed of commuter: the supercommuter.
