FRONTLINE: Money, Power and Wall Street
Air Date: 
Tuesday, Apr 24th - 8:00pm
Episode Title: 
Money, Power and Wall Street - Part 1

FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk (“Inside the Meltdown,” “The Warning”) investigates how two U.S. administrations have confronted the crisis — while dealing with sharp internal divisions and a relationship with Wall Street marked by mistrust and dependence, mutual interests and competing goals. The investigation charts the largest government bailout in U.S. history, a series of decisions that rewrote the rules of government and fueled a debate that would alter the country’s political landscape. Focusing on the Obama administration, FRONTLINE tells the story of a newly elected president with a mandate for change grappling with the multi-headed menace of economic instability, and with fundamental choices about winners and losers and the direction of his presidency.
