Summary
"The bets were huge and risky: billions of dollars on the housing market. The upside was undeniable: Superbanks reaped billions of dollars, dominated the landscape and gobbled up competitors. Then, the bottom dropped out -- the massive losses on Wall Street nearly broke the banks...Frontline goes behind closed doors to tell the inside story of how things went so wrong so fast and to document efforts to stabilize the industry." -- Container
