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.
