Tonight's theme is looking at some footage from the 1930's. Whenever there is economic turmoil I personally like to go back to the mother of all economic crises, The Great Depression.

The first film is an hour long documentary which has exceptional analysis, interviews and original film clips from 1929.

The Great Crash of 1929

The 2008 elections are upon us and as usual, 3rd party candidates get a pure media blackout. With the obvious corporate agenda infused in both major political parties, tonight's video is An Unreasonable Man, a exceptionally well done documentary on Ralph Nader. Regardless of whether you agree with his positions or blame him, hate him, Nader has been a tireless advocate for the citizens of the United States.

This evening I cannot help but revisit the 1930's. A famous film from the Great Depression is Our Daily Bread. Labeled pinko and capitalist propaganda at the same time, the story depicts communal living during the depression era.

Considering how Lehman Brothers just received subpoenas for criminal violations, I thought we might revisit Enron. Isn't it wonderful how we have scandal, hearings and a few get busted but most....simply move on to yet another bubble?

This week we have a corporate biased, but very well done, PBS documentary Commanding Heights.   

Contained within this video are the Russian and 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, the Great Depression and Globalization. Also is the admittance that the interactions and dependencies of global markets, financial markets is not well understood.
