In 2008 greed and recklessness by the titans of Wall Street, years of deregulation by the US government and faulty ratings from credit agencies triggered the biggest financial crash since The Great Depression.
In this 4 part documentary series 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.
