Vice Spe­cial Re­port: The Panic Artists

The Week (US) - - Arts -

The Great Re­ces­sion could have been far worse. In this new doc­u­men­tary, Henry Paul­son, Tim­o­thy Gei­th­ner, Ben Ber­nanke, and other ma­jor play­ers share new de­tails about the panic cre­ated by the 2008 fi­nan­cial col­lapse and how they im­pro­vised a way through the cri­sis. Ge­orge W. Bush and Barack Obama also weigh in as di­rec­tor John Mag­gio ex­plores the com­pro­mises and close calls that led to a tax­payer-funded bank bailout, night­mare losses for mil­lions of home­own­ers, and a grad­ual re­vival of the U.S. econ­omy that nev­er­the­less sowed last­ing class re­sent­ments. Mon­day, Dec. 10, at 10 p.m., HBO
