Money, Power and Wall Street
Here is a very good Frontline video series on the Financial Crisis which erupted in 2008.
This series --- titled Money, Power and Wall Street --- consists of four 1-hour episodes detailing the growth of the
Credit Default Swap bubble, and its ultimate bursting, which triggered the near-collapse of the world banking system.
If you're baffled by Credit Default Swaps, Collateralized Debt Obligations, and Synthetic Collateralized Debt Obligations --- these videos will make those things understandable.
Have a look.
