TV Worth Watching: ‘Money, Power and Wall Street’

Three years after America’s largest financial collapse since the Great Depression, the U.S. economy is still unsteady. While some banks received huge bailouts, countless Americans are struggling. A new four-hour documentary by PBS FRONTLINE investigates what has been done (and not done) to secure America’s financial future.

At the heart of Money, Power and Wall Street are exclusive interviews with Wall Street power brokers and financial innovators, Bush and Obama administration insiders, regulators and critics from across the political spectrum that provide first-hand testimony from those deeply involved in the financial crisis and its aftermath.

FRONTLINE has published nearly 20 of these interviews — including more than seven hours of eight extended video interviews — to present the inside story of the struggles to rescue and repair a shattered economy, exploring key decisions, missed opportunities and the unprecedented and uneasy partnership between government leaders and titans of finance.
