This program should be required viewing by everyone, especially our elected officials and those managing financial institutions. If you closed your eyes, you would think they were talking about 2005-2008.

Wall Street lays more eggs.
Review by David on 12/21/20 review stating Wall Street lays more eggs.
A rare previously broadcast gem that recent events has compelled its resurgence. A cautionary tale that underscores the perils and pitfalls that greed and fear are the true competing engines driving and, in turn, are driven by the need to excel. In a sense, a real life melodrama whose end results hurt the audience, ultimately.

I have been using a worn video of this to teach my students and am thrilled it is now available again, on DVD. Lucid, vivid, terrific overview.
