Bet Against the American Dream

This video and audio podcast (Inside Job) takes a deeper look into the complex financial instruments that caused all the economic turmoil we see today.  Both the NPR Planet Money folks and ProPublica folks do a really good job explaining how all this stuff was constructed and subsequently affected us all.  This also gives good background to understand what’s currently happening with Goldman Sachs, ACA, & Paulson.
