The Secret History of the Global Fin Crash

Al-Jazeera, the Qatar-based media company, has been a trailblazer in many ways in the otherwise closed, information-phobic Arab World. Last month, it carried Meltdown, a four-part investigation into a world of greed and recklessness that brought down the financial world. 

The four-part nearly 170 minute series is one of the best pieces of investigative journalism  I have ever seen. I am pretty sure that you will like it as much as I did. Also, it will introduce you to the real greedy men and women who destroyed the livelihoods (and lives) of millions of people around the world.


The show begins with the 2008 crash that pushed 30 million people into unemployment, brought countries to the edge of insolvency and turned the clock back to 1929.


Here is Episode I: The Men Who Crashed The World

This analysis was most 'interesting'. The complete lack of economic understanding while analysing what is essentially an economic issue is very revealing. I am surprised you chose to put this up.
