Henry Paulson in Frontline: Inside the Meltdown

Frontline: Inside the Meltdown

2009 NR

Shining a light on the economic meltdown that changed the mood of the 2008 presidential election, this edition of "Frontline" offers an inside look at what caused the crisis and who -- if anyone -- could have stopped it. Segments focus on the failures of Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and AIG; the U.S. government bailout costing taxpayers $700 billion; and the roles of the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve in repairing the damage.
