FRONTLINE

Money, Power and Wall Street: Part Three

  • Aired: 05/01/2012
  • 57:26
  • Rating: NR
FRONTLINE goes inside the Obama White House, telling the story of how a newly elected president with a mandate for change inherited a financial crisis that would challenge his administration and define his first term. From almost the very beginning, there was a division inside the economic team over how tough the White House should be on the banks that were at the heart of the crisis.
