The Financial Crisis Explained

NPR’s Fresh Air has been doing a very good job of demys­ti­fy­ing the finan­cial cri­sis. Here, we have an inter­view with the Pulitzer Prize-win­ning finan­cial jour­nal­ist, Gretchen Mor­gen­son. As you’ll see, the pro­gram (iTunes — RSS Feed — Stream Here) does an excel­lent job of con­nect­ing many small dots, explain­ing pre­cise­ly how the reck­less­ness of Wall Street threat­ens to spill over into Main Street and beyond, harm­ing our indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive finan­cial future. Even if you live out­side the US, this all prob­a­bly applies to you. Def­i­nite­ly worth a lis­ten.
