Bill Moyers Journal has had several programs on the financial crisis; the latest was this last week and is well worth watching (both the video and the transcript) link here
Moyers interviews two writers for Mother Jones magazine, David Corn and Kevin Drum who have been investigating and reporting the scandal for some time. They detail how Wall Street money is fueling the political campaigns of both parties, is deeply embedded and enjoyed by the economic officials of the administration, and by Congress, not to mention the Washington think tanks. It pretty well dooms any meaningful financial sector reform; although the Obama White House has been leaking hopeful sounding trial balloons this week, holding one's breath is not to be recommended.
To predict the outcome, check what Wall Street is willing to accept and then read the fine print very carefully. And enjoy the video if you can.
