Excellent retrospective

Paul Krugman is a font of knowledge and David Brancaccio is a marvel in the art of the interview. The conversation is about lessons learned from the financial collapse of 2008 and a discussion of the needed goal posts for the Obama stimulus package. The views expressed are an important voice in America’s path on the road to financial recovery and in the principles of good governance. With each passing year, these discussions provide more of an historical perspective than insightful reporting on the inner workings of Wall Street and Washington.
