Meltdown Part 1 of 4: The Men Who Crashed The World

Created on Friday, 16 December 2011 19:42

In 2008 greed and recklessness by the titans of Wall Street, years of deregulation by the US government and faulty ratings by credit agencies triggered the largest financial crash since The Great Depression.

In this 4 part documentary produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Terence McKenna takes viewers behind the headlines and into the back rooms of world governments and financial institutions, in an attempt to explain the events and decisions that led to the 2008 meltdown.

If you think that politicians and financial institutions have now learned their lesson and the crash of 2008 will not repeat itself – think again.
