If you like political documentaries, then this is the show for you at times it was very boring and hard to follow though, it is after all American Politics seen through this commenters Canadian eyes.

He would be fired from Chase by Michael Hudson [admittedly the greatest economist in North America] - - he would be hired as a consultant by Keating [Keating Five, S&L Debacle], to claim how great and wonderful Keating's S&L was [largest failure of a financial institution at that time] - - Alan Greenspan, the loser's loser!
Not to worry, because Greenspan went on to Brown Brothers Harriman after his firing by Prof. Hudson, he would be handpicked to head the Federal Reserve - - where Yes Men and Yes Women work!
[Wish more of this? Then vote for Hillary Clinton or Ted Cruz!]

According to this documentary on 2008 Financial Crisis, public servants, such as Alan Greenspan, Larry Summer, Robert Rubin, etc., stopped other public servants, economists, journalists, etc. from regulating the financial industry that caused the 2008 Financial Tsunami. Moreover, the Clinton, Bush & Obama administrations supported the financial industry deregulation that caused the Financial Tsunami. Wall Street firms executives got huge bonus while tax payers bailed out all bankrupting financial firms.

Allen Greenspan was a protégé of Ayn Rand, who believed in zero government regulation. This Frontline programs explores how the Fed, the Treasury and the Big Banks lobbied to have zero regulation on financial derivatives. And so the world got the financial “Big Recession” during which the American public bailed out the big banks to prevent the “Second Depression.” Too bad the Tea Party people today cannot understand that it was not just a bunch of Black peoplel buying houses they couldn’t afford that caused the financial crisis of 2009. If you watch the program, you’ll find that the real cause of the “Big Recession” was just a bunch of greedy arrogant White guys. The trouble is, the Big Banks have bought out the Congress so still there is no regulation to prevent another “Big Recession.”
