Moyers & Company: America's Political Breakdown (Enhanced DVD)
One of the largest crisis the American people have ever faced is the debt crisis. This led to an unprecedented 16 day shutdown where the government was completely closed. This immediate crisis was resolved, but only temporarily through the raising of the debt ceiling. This documentary highlights the looming problem which was put aside in this historic event. Join Martin Wolf, the chief economics commentator for the Financial Times, as he attempts to untangle the legislative nightmare that is the debt-ceiling crisis. This documentary provides viewers with a much more thorough understanding of the economy of politics, particularly as it pertains to what Wolf refers to as, "The legislative equivalent of a nuclear bomb that America has aimed at itself." The original broadcast date of this documentary was October 18, 2013.
