"Breaking the Bank"

Frontline aired a great report of the deal-making, arm-twisting, and self-dealing that occurred among the Treasury, Fed, and major banks during last fall's crisis, with a focus on the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch shotgun marriage.

The report should be required viewing for Money & Banking classes going forward.

Thanks! I meant to watch that, but got caught up in the city council meeting and forgot that it was on last night. FWIW, here's a link to view it online: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/breakingthebank/view/
