If you are more than just curious about what exactly is behind the global economic crisis, I cannot recommend this show highly enough:
The Giant Pool of Money is entertaining and informative, and IN NO WAY has any political slant to it. It's quite refreshing actually to hear events reported on without a slant one way or the other.
And before you all bash me for linking you to public radio, listen to the show for yourself. The glorification of baby murder and sodomy is not alluded to in any way in this 59 minute episode.
