A compilation explaining how the economic crisis of 2008, in which 1.75 TRILLION dollars was destroyed by some of Wall Streets finest minds. -- What was happening?? What went wrong?? How these new complex economic instraments (like derivatives) work?? Who was involved?? How/why it unraveled?? Etc....
Along w/ brief informative clips & segments from business/news shows.. Are featured 2 great episodes of PBS show Frontline. The first episode is 'Inside the Meltdown'. It gives a brief review of the business being conducted on Wall Street by financial institutions & brokers.. Then breaksdown the stock market collapse step by step over those fateful days when the shit finally hit the fan hard. The second episode is 'The Warning'. It coherently explains exactly what had been happening in the stock market, the rules & regulations (then & now) imposed, & the both the private sector & the governments involvement in it all. --- As well as a bunch of other documentaries & interviews discussing these events.
♥ Robert F. Kennedy (Nov. 20th, 1925 - June 6th, 1968) ♥
He was a very special kind of man. In speeches he gave, Bobby often said, "Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change."
He had this moral courage, and he inspired others to have it as well. Not a perfect man, but an evolving one, Bobby changed a lot in his short life. And its those changes - that evolution into a man of high ideals, of great humility, & true compassion & concern for those who were less fortunate which, I believe, made him the kind of man worthy of being considered a hero.
I compiled this playlist, including 3 excellent documentaries on his life, along w/ a number of clips & videos of speeches & interviews he did, & painstakingly organized them into a comprehensive order so that anyone who is interested in learning about this beautiful man would be able to do so w/ ease.. Because I wanted to create an easily accessable way for people today to come to know & understand this great man.. As I feel, 2day more than ever, we NEED more like him. Thanks. ~N
