Meltdown is a four-part Canadian Broadcasting Corportation investigation into a world of greed and recklessness that brought down the financial 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. But how did it all go so wrong?
Bernie Sanders: In 2003, Sanders tells the chair of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, that Americans are not living the way that Mr. Greenspan thinks. Then just 5 years later, Greenspan, now former chair, admitted that there was a flaw in his ideology.
Meltdown moves on to examine the epidemic of fear that caused the world's banks to stop lending and how the people began their fight back. Finally, it asks how the world can prepare for the next crisis even as it recognizes that this one is far from over.
