"Inside the Meltdown"
Tonight, the PBS show “Frontline” airs an episode called “Inside the Meltdown.” It looks back on the scary days of last summer and fall — the Bear Stearns collapse, Lehman Brothers, AIG, the Bailout. I haven’t seen it yet, but the Boston Globe calls the show “an indispensable primer on the financial carnage.”
It includes interviews with former CEOs, economists and journalists like Joe Nocera from the New York Times:
If you bail somebody out of a problem they themselves cause, what incentive will they have the next time to avoid making the same mistake?
I’m a documentary hound anyway, but “Inside the Meltdown” sounds like it’ll be an hour well spent.
