Not sure
It's called 'Money Power and Wall street" a 2012 documentary.
I think most likely it is in one part..that's usually how the Frontline Docs are.

Starts 9 pm eastern on PBS..check your local listings, just to make sure your local broadcaster doesn't have it on a different time..

I took the antenna down when re-shingling the roof. I don't watch tv and haven't for years.

....If you miss the second part, it will be on the PBS site after it is aired on TV.

....They have a lot of past documentaries online that are interesting.

Thanks for the links Dill..

My favorite quote so far :

Jamie Dimon : “Somehow, we just missed … that home prices don’t go up forever.”

PBS Frontline: What Caused the Financial Crisis?

"Inside the Meltdown," which investigates the causes of the ongoing economic crisis and examines what government officials didn't see, couldn't stop and haven't been able to fix.

Michael Kirk
Frontline Producer
Wednesday, February 18, 2009; 10:00 AM
Anonymous: Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are on record (and video) in 2004 opposing efforts to strengthen regulation of Fannie and Freddie, and now bear significant responsibility for contributing to the mess we're in, but are given a platform here to point fingers elsewhere. Why aren't they held accountable?

Michael Kirk: We didn't make a program designed to "hold people responsible". If we did it would take many more hours than the time we devoted to explaining what happened during those specific times (March; late August; September; October). The "blame" would spread quite wide--from the Clinton administration, through Alan Greenspan, many republicans, and democrats, and regulators, and middle-class citizens, and bankers, and on and on. Senator Dodd and Congressman Frank are included in our program as witnesses in specific meetings that are central to our inquiry. We offered many republican senators and congressmen equal opportunities to talk about those meetings. They chose not to participate.

but some people still want to blame everyone but themselves...

....Did you obtain a preferential, sub-prime loan? Personally, I did not have anything to do with it, nor any say in the happenings.

....Not so long ago, the Democrats were the working man's party and the Republicans were the business party.

....Today, the Democrats are comprised of at least half by the Socialist/Communist/Marxist ideologies, all perpetual welfare, and almost all blacks, that at least some of the Republicans profit from.

....It is a simple fact, that the recently new welfare Democrats create the programs that the financial sector that includes some Republicans, always profit from; which then leaves about half of America that is in the middle to be coined as the "swing voters."

....Within this two party lock, are several various political ideologies that someplace, the declining working man's party of liberty got lost without representation... or jobs.
