House of Cards (CNBC) & The Ascent of Money (PBS)

Tonight on CNBC there is a two-hour special entitled House of Cards which, to quote Newsday, is “A remarkably clear overview of the financial debacle that has put us all in this fine mess.” While it it scheduled for showing at 8pm 12 am Eastern Time this evening I think I would ‘bet you my house‘ that CNBC will be rebroadcasting it several times in the coming weeks too.

A week or two I also discovered an outstanding program on the finacical crisis entitled The Ascent of Money on PBS which was written and narrated by Harvard professor Niall Ferguson who is the author of the book by the same name entitled The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World. While I don’t know about continuing local broadcasts of the program on local PBS channels the entire program is available to watch online on the PBS web site location I linked to above.

Since we can all stand to understand the economic science(s) of the crisis we are in better I think I can highly recommend our viewing both of these programs.
