all so depressingly familiar - or should I say reccessionally familiar? Not the kind of thing I can watch in one sitting, but well presented and worth some watches.

Government business leaders have yet to come up with any explanation as to what took place? & how to prevent further ecomonic erosion,of likes we are experiencing now? One thing that hasnt changed is human nature, which is fueled by greed & fear?
