PBS Frontline Series on Global Financial Crash Features Alexander

While American citizens and cities continue to struggle with unemployment and foreclosures, the country’s largest financial houses survived the recession with help from the biggest government bailout in U.S. history.

“Wall Street got bailed out and Main Street didn’t,” is how one expert puts it in the PBS Frontline special, “Money, Power and Wall Street”.

Emory Law Professor Frank Alexander is among those interviewed for the four-hour, two-part program on the global financial crisis that airs today, April 24, and Tuesday, May 1.

Alexander is the Sam Nunn Chair in Ethics and Professionalism, founding director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion and director of the Project on Affordable Housing and Community Development. He also serves as general counsel for the Center for Community Progress.

The Frontline series examines the practices and risk-taking that led to the global financial meltdown when the housing bubble burst. It makes predictions and posits whether current reform and regulation under way is enough to prevent such a collapse again.
