Meltdown is a four-part investigation into a world of greed and recklessness that brought down the financial world. The show begins with the 2008 crash that pushed 30 million people into unemployment, brought countries to the edge of insolvency and turned the clock back to 1929.

But how did it all go so wrong? Lack of government regulation; easy lending in the US housing market meant anyone could qualify for a home loan with no government regulations in place. Also, London was competing with New York as the banking capital of the world. Gordon Brown, the British finance minister at the time, introduced “light touch regulation” – giving bankers a free hand in the marketplace.

Meltdown moves on to examine the epidemic of fear that caused the world’s banks to stop lending and how the people began their fight back. Finally, it asks how the world can prepare for the next crisis even as it recognises that this one is far from over.

We hear about the sheikh who says the crash never happened; a Wall Street king charged with fraud; a congresswoman who wants to jail the bankers; and the world leaders who want a re-think of capitalism.

  1. The bail out ended up being the single greatest investment (in terms of
    gross profit) in the history of mankind. All the money hss since been
    paid back to the taxpayer, and at a crazy as fuck intrest rate

  2. Congressional hearings are a waste of time and money they never find fault and when they do they levy fines that do not equal anywhere close to the monies made in the scam.  Its a game aimed at making us think they are valuable.

  3. At one time the Peoples Republic Of China would have taken these globalist bankers and their ilk out into the streets and hung them for public display…not so sure about that now… too many Chinese leaders seem to have been compromised.

  4. The globalist bankster elites are parasites on humanity, profiting endlessly on cycles of destruction and rebuilding. And yet many are falling for it still. They may even through in a 3rd WW just for extra profit and promotion of Agenda 21 goals.

  5. Why do they have these ridiculous meetings after a collapse. We have the worst collapse ever staring us in the face and no one has called a meeting to try and find a way to stop it. Why???

  6. What was extremely irritating about this time was not the fact that the public sector bailed out the private sector.  What is forgotten is TARP was not "stimulus" it was to actually buy assets.  It became a pool of money that went into the black hole and most likely did nothing to help the economy (either during Bush or Obama).  When money is available without numerous strings attached, this is what happens repeatedly. Of course, we are finding those strings in the form of words may also have limited meaning.

  7. I am going to ride my new pink carbon fix bike.  I like the color pink.  You guys bore me.  Look what you need to understand that is that commercial banks are criminal syndicates.  They deal in Counterfeit money.  Today our economy runs on electronic money.  But electronic money is not legal tender yet it accounts for more than 90 percent of the economy.  So margin investment is really just dealing with economics of counterfeit.  All of the economy and court cases is just trying to safeguard the counterfeiting elements. This is not going to change because peope don't read.  people complain about banks and abuses but they turn around and vote for the people that are financed by the very people that abuse them.  America is in full tard mode.  Okay enough am going to go ride my bicycle

  8. Very well presented. The crash of 2008 is first of its kind in the history. For the first time in a financial meltdown happened that affected the whole world. Thats because the world economy is more connected than ever before. The problem that we faced in 2008 is first of its kind. Which is why the solutions applied were also inadequate and not correct.

    This is exactly like what happened after world war 1. The world never saw a war of the kind that happened between 1914-1919. So the victors of the war put some measures that were more or less like knee jerk reactions and not permanent solutions. The result was even bigger and disastrous war 20 years later. I am afraid the meltdown of 2008 is going to look like a picnic in comparison to what could happen in future.
