Orlean had as her guests two authors: Kirk MacKenzie, the author of a book called Money, and Dr. Stan Monteith, the author of Brotherhood of Darkness and the talk show host of Radio Liberty.
The topic was the "Financial Crisis — Which has put our nation at enormous risk."
The forum discussed five questions:
- The extent of the crisis and the enormous debt we are in.
- The effect it is having on our nation, people, jobs, housing, food?
- Did this happen by chance or was it carefully planned? What was the role of the Federal Reserve? What exactly is the Federal Reserve, its history, and its goals?
- How serious is the financial crisis? Are we just in a double dip recession or is this a great depression, as serious as the one back in the 1930s?
- What can we possibly do at this difficult time to prepare for a rough road ahead?
