Crisis TV: Sorkin on Rose, Plus Frontline

by: Private Sector Development

Our friends at PBS have released a couple of interesting crisis-related television programs this week.


First, Charlie Rose has an excellent interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin. Mr Sorkin discusses his just-released book, Too Big to Fail, which tells the story of last year's Wall Street meltdown through the window of Paulon, Blankfein, Geithner, and other members of Wall Street's ruling coterie. Here's an excerpt:

Next, Frontline has a new program entitled The Warning, which traces the roots to the crisis back through the 1990s. Credit Writedowns has several posts that provide useful background information to the characters and themes of the show.

Both are well worth viewing, particularly if you don't have time to read through Sorkin's 600+ page monster.
