Below are two videos with very different perspectives on the recent financial crisis. Video 1 assigns most of the blame to the US Government in general and the Federal Reserve in particular. Video 2 postulates that perhaps ".... it is time to look beyond capitalism towards a new social order that would allow us to live within a system that really could be responsible, just, and humane ...."
I don't necessarily agree/disagree with either view, but do find both videos well-made and quite entertaining. Enjoy !!!
